About brickitect

My name is Greg and I have had a passion for making videos since I started vlogging my life in June 2011.  I found early success on YouTube and by summer 2017, my vlogs had turned from being a hobby to a full-time job which allowed me to follow another dream...reviving my childhood passion for LEGO.

Upon leaving my "real job", I finally had the time to make videos on a small channel called "brickitect" that I created years earlier.  Within a few months of regularly uploading videos, my channel started to take off.  Shortly after, I brought on my two year old son, Clark, to share this hobby with him.

Over the last few years, we've not only built LEGO sets...we've created lifelong memories.  I feel blessed to have had the ability to spend all this time with my son creating our "video time capsule" and am amazed how many people have joined us along the way.

This community has become our extended family.  You watch us share our journey.  You learn with us.  You laugh with us.  You cry with us.  Most of all, you appreciate a personal LEGO channel based on authenticity and by sharing our bond with the world, we are inspiring others to do the same.

At this point in the story, it seems like everything is going really well and it was until we finally saw the effects of COPPA in January 2020.  While brickitect doesn't make videos for kids, I can see the risk of making toy videos with a child in them and made the decision to mark all of my videos with Clark as "made for kids" which had a substantial financial impact on the channel.

This process taught me an important lesson: Don't rely solely on YouTube for my financial security.  If I want to follow my passion and keep this dream alive, I need to find another way to earn income.  I believe offering exclusive content Patreon is the answer.  Please take some time to review the various tiers I've created and consider joining us.  Thank you for becoming a patron!
