Our Story

Engage your imagination, brick by brick.

Welcome to Bricker Builds! Our intuitive building sets will show you how to assemble pop culture characters, fantasy weapons, and more with LEGO® bricks. Want to become a brick building master? You've come to the right place.

Who are we?

We are a small team of designers and artists. Our mission is to design awesome, never-before-seen LEGO® brick sculptures that we would want to build ourselves, and make them available to everyone.

Although we are not affiliated with The LEGO Group, we are lifelong fans of the brand and seek to bring new and exciting value to this community!

How do we design our sculptures?

All of our massive sculptures are first modeled in a 3D program and converted into a detailed brick sculpture using our proprietary Bricker software.

From there, we utilize the diverse talents of our model design team to enhance the model with specialty pieces and advanced building techniques. Finally, our instruction design team designs an easy to follow, step-by-step guide showing you how to assemble the model.

Our process and the incredible team behind it allows us to create designs that are premium, affordable, and easy to assemble.

Meet the team!

Christopher Gearhart | Owner & Chief Software Developer

Bricker Builds was launched in 2020 by Christopher Gearhart, a stop motion animator and graphics programmer formerly known for his LEGO® animation work on the YouTube channel Bricks Brought to Life! His LEGO® modeling software Bricker is what makes everything we do here at Bricker Builds possible – and many of the models here are designed in part by him.

Jace Summers | Marketing & Content Manager

Joining the team in January of 2021, Jace started out as our lead instruction designer, setting the quality standard high with his commitment to a great building experience. Jace is now overseeing content creation, pursuing new and exciting ways to show off our models through photo and video.

James Nunnally | Product Manager

James first joined the Bricker Builds team in early 2021 to help out with chemical bonding projects (i.e. gluing models for travel). Having quit his job to pursue the Bricker Builds mission full-time, he now oversees product development, pursuing new and exciting product innovations, coordinating model releases, and so much more.

Dave Holder | Model Designer

Designer of our many of our most popular models, Dave brings over a decade of experience building life-sized sculptures for LEGO® Masters, LEGOLAND® Melbourne, and more. With his talent, our models have become even more affordable, more appealing, and easier than ever to build.

Lewis Meeny | Model Designer

Lewis left a strong impression when he sent in his first commissioned design, the DC-17 Blasters, and has since become a valuable member of the model design team. His artistic talent and eye for detail have elevated the Bricker Builds designs.

Brian Saviano | Community Builder & Personality

Brian is a rockstar in the LEGO® community. You may know him as published author of Pro Gamers Guide to Healthy Habits or host on the Beyond the Brick YouTube channel. Brian has been a big supporter of Bricker Builds since we first launched, reviewing our builds and sharing them on his streams, and most recently spearheading the vibrant Bricker Builds Discord community.

Caitlyn Bell | Administrative Assistant

Caitlyn brings much-needed organizational talent to our team of creatives, assisting with scheduling and order fulfillment. Caitlyn also engages with customers over email, answering questions and providing solutions with her extensive knowledge of the brand.

Colson Drake | Instruction Designer & Model Builder

Colson joined the Bricker Builds team in December of 2021, taking on a tremendous amount of chemical bonding projects in preparation for Brickworld and other local LEGO conventions. He brings a warm and inviting presence to our team, and after adhering hundreds of thousands of bricks together, he has now taken on the responsibility of designing our intuitive instruction manuals!

Aaron Crumbley | Convention Manager

Aaron Crumbley took the leap from years in the film industry and small business development into our mission of creating memorable experiences with LEGO brick sculptures for everyone. Aaron is a phenomenal leader and genuine, trustworthy, and capable member of our team, and we hope you get the chance to meet him at a Bricker Builds booth experience near you.

Tyler DeSilva | Model Designer & Instruction Designer

A more recent addition to the model & instruction design teams, Tyler is a talented artist and embodies the brand's commitment to excellence. His eye for detail shows in the quality of his instructions, and his model design debut with the Nolan & 1989 Bat-Weapons was a huge success. Expect to see many more designs from Tyler here on the Bricker Builds site!
