Paul Bacio Jr.

Brick Explorers


A former youth pastor and a big kid at heart, Paul found his passion for brick building shortly after graduating from Bible college. This passion led him into a 15-year career developing and teaching educational brick-building curriculum in the San Francisco Bay Area. Parents and kids alike enjoy his age-appropriate, yet challenging, designs. Paul was also recognized among thousands as one of the Top 10 Finalists in the Ohio “Brick Factor” competition hosted by LEGO®. Everything his eye sees, he is mentally converting to bricks, figuring out how it all fits, one brick at a time.
