About Me

David Gagnon

I began playing with LEGO® when I was 2 years old, and I have never stopped!  In my early years as a builder, I focused mostly on building Castles, and at age 8 I began building 'my city' which dominated all my living spaces until I finally took it down at age 16.  But that was not the end of LEGO for me.  The Vancouver LEGO® Club was about to form with an original roster of about 12 adult builders, and with my city out of the way, I was ready to start building specifically for public events, and to return to building Castles and other historic themes.

Today, I work primarily as a stage technician and my long time love of theatre has led me to this great "day job".  In my time away from the theatre, I enjoy outdoor adventures and working on various community projects.  Large projects in recent years include working
on the BC-STV referendum campaign (which failed to convince British Columbians that change in their electoral structure would be beneficial), and was the general coordinator for the 16th annual International Democratic Education Conference which was held in Canada for the first time in August 2008 at UBC. And of course, I work on LEGO® events/displays and do LEGO® theme birthday parties for kids.

Other sites/groups I'm involved with:

  • My photo page on Google with many LEGO® related photos and other interesting things.
  • The Vancouver LEGO® Club is an organization of Adult Fans of LEGO® (AFoLs), started in 2000 with an ever-changing membership of approximately 20-30.
  • The Society for the Advancement of Non-coercive Education is dedicated to promoting and developing education alternatives that are child-centred and democratic in function.  SANE was the hosting organization of the International Democratic Education Conference in 2008.
