About me

I received my first LEGO set at Christmas when I was 11. My LEGO collection was very small during my childhood and I lost interest in LEGO for a long time. 14 years later (almost seven years ago) I got a LEGO Racers 8650 set for Christmas, and it was with this model that my passion for the studless LEGO Technic began. I bought many big Technic sets and built dozens of my own models. In April 2012 I quit my teaching career and moved to Denmark to do the job I have been dreaming of for five years – LEGO Technic Designer.

What I do outside LEGO: I love hanging out with friends, talking to and meeting people, and photography. Besides that I read, listen to music, play the bass and write articles about bands and review albums. My favourite sports are frisbee, rollerblading and swimming. As a typical Czech I enjoy watching Ice Hockey World Championship. 

Best creation I have ever made: Probably my SAAB 37 Viggen jet plane I built in 2011. The complexity and the amount of functions I managed to squeeze into it make it my favourite model so far. 

My favourite type of model would be: A big display team jet plane, the Tumbler or a remote controlled animal!

My favorite product

8455 Back-Hoe Loader. It contains tons of pneumatics and it is fun to play with. The functionality of this set is enormous considering its size.

Most challenging creation

Basically all of them, but probably the walking animals I built were amongst the trickiest to design.
