Question and Answer: When did you start building with K'NEX?
I've been building with K'nex since my 9th birthday when I got my first roller coaster set.
How did you come up with the idea for your winning model?
For my winning model I started with a simple roller coaster design and added to it as I built.
What has been your most challenging K'NEX creation?
The launch of the roller coaster I am currently building is my most challenging because I had to build a semi-automatic launch system with a trigger the car could hit on its own.
Do you have a favorite past K'NEXpert? If so, who?
Not really, I haven't looked at them very much.
How many siblings do you have? What are their age(s) and gender(s)?
I have one brother named Aidan who is almost 16.
Do they build with K'NEX too? Do you build models together?
He doesn't build with K'nex - he's too busy with his crew team.
What are your favorite hobbies (besides building with K'NEX)?
I LOVE skiing, biking and scooter riding.
What is your favorite subject in school?
Math and art are my favorite school subjects.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be a structural engineer designing roller coasters.
What is the coolest part about being a 2014 K'NEXpert?
The coolest part is when I found out I won. I couldn't believe it. I'm so excited to go to the factory and my parents are excited to put the prize money toward my college fund.
What advice do you have for other kids who want to be a K'NEXpert?
Don't think for once what you built isn't good enough to win. Just go ahead and enter the contest!
