How did you come up with the idea for your winning model?
I collect fans and have wanted a belt-drive drum fan for a long time. Since they are really expensive to buy, I decided to build one with K'NEX.
What has been your most challenging K'NEX creation?
Custom roller coasters.
Do you have a favorite past K'NEXpert? If so, who?
I like them all equally.
How many siblings do you have? What are their age(s) and gender(s)?
I have 3 sisters. Their ages are 8, 6, and 5.
Do they build with K'NEX too? Do you build models together?
What are your favorite hobbies (besides building with K'NEX)?
Collecting fans and playing with my friends, Samuel and Brayden.
What is your favorite subject in school?
What do you want to be when you grow up?
A business owner.
What is the coolest part about being a 2014 K'NEXpert?
I was in the newspaper and felt famous at my school and in my city. Also, the owner of a fan company called Fanimation heard about my fan. He signed me up to be a member of the Antique Fan Collectors Association and helped me get votes. He also sent me a package of things from his company.
What advice do you have for other kids who want to be a K'NEXpert?
Do your very best.
