As a child, LEGO was always my favourite toy and now as an adult it appears nothing has changed. I emerged from my dark ages in 2011 after rediscovering my old sets in my parents’ attic and haven’t looked back since. I’m a big fan of the licensed themes particularly, DC/Marvel Super Heroes and Lord of the Rings, though Creator Expert provides a challenging and technical build I’m rather fond of.
I am currently an expat living out in Basel, Switzerland, but have a firm footing back in the UK when time permits. I have had LEGO ever since I can remember — and only since my wee one came along have I re-kindled the flame for building again. Over the last decade I have been actively involved in diecast forums under the name of keefyd and I run matchbox1-75.co.uk, a resource site for the 1-75 series of miniatures by Matchbox.
When I was three years old my dad bought home 6659 TV Camera Crew as a gift — he had no idea what he had just unleashed. Three decades and no dark age later, I am still going strong. My love of LEGO led me to a career in Civil Engineering and I am now raising three budding LEGO lovers with my lovely wife. When not writing for Brick Fanatics or fulfilling my duties as U.S. Editor at Blocks magazine, I enjoy collecting, MOCing, exhibiting, as well as running, climbing and home improvement.
Johnamarie Macias is the keeper of TheWookieeGunner.com. She also writes for Jedi News and podcasts in a variety of shows, including Star Scavengers, a LEGO Star Wars podcast with a focus on The Freemaker Adventures.
I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. I’m also Associate Editor for Blocks magazine, and dabble in content strategy, writing and PR for a few non-LEGO platforms.
Brick Fanatics was formed by Richard Hayes in 2010 and since 2016 has been owned and managed by Tiro Media Ltd.
