Question and Answer:

When did you start building with K'NEX?
I got my first set of K'NEX when I was 9 years old from my parents.
What was your most challenging K'NEX creation?
My most challenging creation was my Fooseball Table. I originally built the model for the K'NEXpert challenge but then realized it wasn't allowed due to metal dowels in it.
Where did you come up with the idea for your winning model?
My idea was a modified version of what I was originally going to enter, a Fooseball Table.
Do you have a favorite past K'NEXpert, if so who?
My favorite K'NEXpert was Ian who built "The Belly of The Beast", who I believe also won this year as well.
How many siblings do you have? What are their age(s) and gender?
I have a brother named Jacob who is 11 years old.
Do they build with K'NEX too? Do you build models together?
My brother has never liked to build like I do.
What are your favorite hobbies (besides building with K'NEX)?
I like to play soccer, I do a little bit of computer programming, and I love to run.
What is your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject is a tie between mathematics and science.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I hope to be either an engineer, a lawyer, or a doctor.
What has been the coolest part about being a 2010 K'NEXpert?
I think the coolest part was just winning in itself. If you think about how many people entered and how fortunate I am to even be where I am it is amazing to me.
