Question and Answer:

When did you start building with K'NEX?
I started when I was four.

How did you come up with the idea for your winning model?
I was building a robot and then my Dad said it looked sort of like a Kachina. So, we researched Kachinas and I learned what they were and all about them. It was pretty cool designing and building my own.

What has been your most challenging K'NEX creation?
There was one roller coaster that I made that was really tough. It was tricky but once it was finished it worked really well.

Do you have a favorite past K'NEXpert? If so, who?
Too many good ones to choose from. There are so many cool things getting built.

How many siblings do you have? What are their age(s) and gender(s)?
I have a ten year old brother.

Do they build with K'NEX too? Do you build models together?
Yes, he builds with K'NEX, too, and we have fun building together. We've made some cool rollercoasters.

What are your favorite hobbies (besides building with K'NEX)?
I love drawing and I love playing Minecraft and other video games.

What is your favorite subject in school?
Art class is the best.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be an artist.

What is the coolest part about being a K'NEXpert?
It's been fun because everyone at school has been really excited for me and my brother (who is also a K'NEXpert this year). We're excited to go on the tour and about all of the prizes. Being a part of the contest is so much fun.

What advice do you have for other kids who want to be a K'NEXpert?
Always keep on trying and have fun!
