Question and Answer: When did you start building with K'NEX?
I started building with K'NEX when I was 5. My very first K'NEX building set was a 400 pieces value tub.
What was your most challenging K'NEX creation?
It was my Mars Rover.
Where did you come up with the idea for your winning model?
I got my idea from the book Space Robots by Tony Hyland. The pictures were very cool, and the rovers could do many amazing things, so I decided to build my own Mars Rover. I named it Eureka (Greek for I found it), which was inspired by Archimedes, the greatest Greek mathematician.
Do you have a favorite past K'NEXpert, if so who?
No. They are all great.
How many siblings do you have? What are their age(s) and gender?
I have a four-year-old brother.
Do they build with K'NEX too? Do you build models together?
He builds with KID K'NEX most of the time, but he also builds with my K'NEX.
What are your favorite hobbies (besides building with K'NEX)?
I like playing piano, reading, biking and collecting rocks.
What is your favorite subject in school?
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be a K'NEX designer.
What has been the coolest part about being a 2010 K'NEXpert?
The coolest part is visiting the headquarters and the factory, being video taped with other K'NEXperts, and expecting to have my own web page @K'NEX.com.
