An avid traveler, Koen likes to explore how different ages and cultures result in different architectural styles, with preferences for historic European and Japanese architecture. He was drawn to LEGO as a way to explore his interests in medieval architecture and fantasy, so it's no surprise that some of his favorite themes are Castle, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. As a fan of architecture new and old he also really enjoys the Modular Building Series. A software engineer by day, he finds LEGO relaxing and it gives him a creative outlet outside of the office.

Michael is the father of two boys that love LEGO almost as much as he does. A sales rep for the publishing industry by day, in the evenings his focus shifts between Classic Space (his childhood favorite), Star Wars, and Architecture. While he finds sorting really satisfying, joining his local LUG has inspired him to create more MOC’s.

Amy is a former elementary school teacher who has built the occasional LEGO set over the years, and kept a large bag of LEGO bricks in her classroom to help her students survive rainy day recess (which can be common in Seattle). She loves to travel to see natural beauty and visit historic landmarks, and is slowly learning to appreciate architecture too.

Stephani came out of the Dark Ages in 2016 when she found LEGO bricks scattered around her newly purchased home. With the addition of a bag of bricks from a thrift store, Stephani used these LEGO bricks to build her own version of the classic LEGO Architecture Sears Tower (no, she’s not calling the skyscraper that new name!). Since then, she has scattered a number of mini- and micro-sized LEGO models around the Minneapolis house she shares with her wife.
