I had the pleasure of meeting Ryan at Brickvention 2014 and he’s a really cool guy – exactly what you’d expect from someone who builds amazing LEGO creations for a living. Pictured above is his epic take on the Sydney Opera House.
If you’re thinking of applying, I wish you the best of luck! Would be really awesome to hear one of my readers successfully joining Ryan’s crew. If you know of anyone who would like a job working with LEGO in Australia, feel free to let them know about this opportunity!
