I'm in another book

I just saw a copy of another book I was interviewed for: Primal Branding. Looks like it’s going to be a fun read, and the author got my points very accurately (not something that always happens with writers).

Moment of Ego

You’ll have to humor me here for a moment – I have a moment of ego to bask in! Being a community liaison, over the years I’ve had a metric ton of photos taken of me out at events, club meetings, and other get togethers with LEGO enthusiasts. Nearly all of these photos make me […]
