JOSHUA Carter’s job title is brick sensei.

In other words, he plays with Lego for a living.

The Baldivis resident has just returned from the Legoland Discovery Centre in Melbourne, where he competed for the position of Master Model Builder.

Out of 72 other hopefuls, Mr Carter made it to the top 14 and was a close runner-up.

Mr Carter has been playing with Lego since he was four years old and saved up his pocket money for Lego kits.

“It doesn’t matter how old you are, Lego brings out your inner child,” he said.

He said people were only limited by their imagination in what they could create with Lego.

Mr Carter said Lego also had educational value, teaching STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects.

About two years ago he decided to follow his passion and started Bricks 4 Kidz Baldivis. Mr Carter has designed and created a variety of model builds for Bricks 4 Kidz classes, which children around the world are building.

In the school holidays, he will teach local children about EV3 robotics and coding. He will also offer creative master classes showing kids a variety of building techniques.

Mr Carter also plans to release some Batman builds in line with the new Lego movie.
