Today I’m excited to welcome Adam Ward to The Quarter Life Comeback podcast.

Adam Ward is an artist and professional LEGO builder. Yes, you read that correctly.

At 33 years old, Adam has been building LEGO for over 30 years, joking that the only things he’s loved longer are boobs and macaroni.

But this is not just a fun hobby. Adam has created major installations for Zappos, The Oscars, Tumblr, Warner Bros. and more. His work has been featured in several magazines, as well as and Martha Stewart

He’s currently working on large-scale collaborations with Nestlé, Microsoft, and as the resident artist at “Bricksburg” where the next several LEGO movies are being made.

Adam believes that play and creativity are two of the most important things in life, and strives to play and create every day. In this episode, he invites us to do the same as well.
