About the original 'Bricks McGee'
Bricks McGee is the alter ego of our founder, Richard Carter.
“I have loved LEGO for as long as I can remember – and haven’t really stopped building since!
As with most AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO), I had a (short) “dark ages” where I left the LEGO hobby behind, and rediscovered it again shortly after university. I have a dedicated LEGO room at home for my personal collection (if it’s ever tidy I’ll take some photos!).
Since then, I’ve built LEGO exhibitions for museums, run countless LEGO workshops across the country, and built some very, very cool models with my favourite plastic blocks. I’m very lucky to enjoy many working days building with these brilliant bricks.”
Since starting, Bricks McGee has become the name of the business as a whole, encompassing our brilliant facilitators for workshops.
