Nathan Sawaya – Artist and Lego Master Builder

Nathan Sawaya gave up a lucrative career as a lawyer when he was offered a position as a master builder for Lego. And a couple of months later, he became a freelance artist operating out of his apartment. These decisions could not have been easy to make, but today, Nathan has no regrets. As he states in the following video, “the worst day being an artist is still better than the best day of being a lawyer”. All it took is a leap of faith.

Here is a short bio and a sample of his work for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.
