I started building Gunpla in 2000 when I, like a lot of people around that time, started watching Gunam Wing that was airing on the Toonami block on Cartoon Network.

 

Fascinated by the show I quickly discover that models were available domestically and bought a few. Like all beginners, I was terrible, but I had a natural artistic talent and I gradually improved my modelling skill set.

 

In 2002 I started my own website Child of Mecha. It quickly grew into North America's largest community of Gunpla modelers and attracted many amazing artists from around the world to participate. Many GBWC finalists started their modelling journey on our forums.

 

In 2007 I had to shut down my site since I was starting a family, but restarted in 2013. Since then I've worked tirelessly on improving my skill set while trying to pass along my knowledge to the next generation of artists. I've been a part of online build shows and even co-host a show called Gunpla Talk.
