While flipping channels, I somehow caught something cool on CNBC tonight. They were interviewing this guy, Nathan Sawaya, who used to be a lawyer in NYC. At some point he quit his 6 figure job, to work at LegoLand for $13/hr (cause he had won a contest by Lego, to find the best Lego builder in the country, or something like that). But after he won, he decided to quit and build Lego sculptures. Now he freelances in New York, selling these things for hundreds or thousands of dollars a pop! Check out his site, amazing stuff:
All because he's loved Legos his whole life! Cool story eh?
