I grew up watching TVOntario, which hosted so many great shows in my youth – Polka Dot Door, The Elephant Show, The Edison Twins, to name a few. Admittedly, I never really grew out of watching children’s programming, and with a 2 year old son now, I now get to share this pleasure of quality public programming with another generation.
So when I was invited to be a guest on TVO Kids after school block, The Space, for Wednesday, August 26th, it truly was a dream come true!

BrickManGraeme will be returning to Etobicoke Lakeshore Culture Days this September 26th from 12-4pm!
After a great success last year at the 2014 Etobicoke Lakeshore Culture Days festival, BrickManGraeme will be bringing back his bricks for a bigger, better, bolder build creating a cacophony of colossal constructions (try saying that ten times fast!) – and he needs your help to make it come to life!

Most of the creations I make with LEGO are based upon commissions – different companies or private individuals reaching out to me for a specific need – but sometimes, I build things for myself, like a life-sized bar made out of DUPLO.

Metro Morning is a radio show on CBC Radio One, broadcast locally in Toronto. According to some stats, it is one of the most listened to shows in Canada.
On May 20th, 2015, BrickManGraeme was invited to come to meet with host Matt Galloway. Together, they discussed Graeme’s love of LEGO throughout his life, how Graeme became a Master Model Builder, and forging an uncharted career path.
Be sure to check out the Metro Morning website for the podcast.
EDIT: Although i was able to get a copy of the broadcast, it appears that the CBC has had some issues uploading it, and will be unable to have it posted onto their site. Sorry to let you down, readers – you’ll just have to catch me on the air next time!

Whether I am running workshops or meeting with clients, many people I speak with are often amazed at how many adults collect LEGO. Of course, once we start playing with LEGO in a workshop, it becomes clear to the participants why – LEGO is fun no matter what age you are, and has many benefits.
I was recently interviewed by the Financial Post newspaper here in Canada for an article exploring the relationship between adults and LEGO, and the growing trend of collecting LEGO amongst adults.
