Man shares passion for building with Legos

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Legoland Discovery Center Atlanta probably doesn't seem like a workplace to the kids who visit there, but Master Model Builder Joshua Bohn says otherwise.

"We like to be able to state that, not only are we now a next generation role model, but that, we don't get bored," said Master Model Builder

It also means everything at the center --  every brick, every building, every creature and every character -- is his business.

"Everything you see made out of Lego, whether it's been built or not, means it's mine to take care of," said Bohn.

To snag this dream job, Bohn won a build-off and his skills are undeniable. The proof is a replica of the entire city of Atlanta.

"Oh, it's a couple weeks' worth of building, It took us about six weeks, 15 hours a day staying busy," Bohn said.

Bohn's passion for plastic pieces is more than apparent. His office is like an exploded art project.

"Cleaning up in here is half the fun at the end of the day," said Bohn.

But the real ABC's of this job extend far beyond bricks. It's painfully apparent that sharing his knowledge is the most important piece in Bohn's collection.

"As a role model, that there's no real limit.  I mean, I turned a hobby what is for most people into career," said Bohn.

Legoland Discovery Center is located in Phipps Plaza at 3500 Peachtree Road in Atlanta. For more information, click here!
