The best NYC successs stories are the ones about New Yorkers who have turned their life passion into a full time job. So meet Cody Wells, who started loving Lego when he was 4 and his delight in it has only grown since then. He has turned himself into a Lego artist earning enough from his Lego based activitites to earn a comfortable 6 figure income.
He does Lego desings on commission, see the video, he teaches classes in Lego building, sells Lego related goods atusNYC markets (LIC Flea and Astoria Market) and is generally regarded in the Lego comunity as a real master of the art.
He’s not keen sticking to Lego sets with their predetermined designs. The thing he likes most is branching out and creating what he can from all the Lego he has available. All the Lego pieces have their own nicknames and Cody knows them all of course. He has a big supply of Lego pieces and he’s constantly creating new pieces and far-out creations. See his website at
