Joe Vigliotti from Pennsylvania Joe
has been a very enthusiastic castle builder since August
2001. He began with a rendition of the Fortified Bridge
over the River Monnow in Monmouth, Wales, followed by the
Keep at Newcastle-upon-Tyne in Northumberland, England.
As he turns out castles, he promises he's also doing his
homework. You can email him at GIJOE163@aol.com.

Jeremy Folkman from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Jeremy just got inspired to build castles in March 2001.
His first castle, the Duke of Albany's powerful Castle
Doune in Stirlingshire, Scotland, can be seen below. If
his wife doesn't murder him for taking out a second
mortgage to buy plastic building blocks, you can expect
great things from him! [Only kidding, of course!]
Needless to say, this's not Jeremy sitting in the
courtyard at Doune, but Alycia is much cuter and I couldn't
resist. A new addition is due in May and it's NOT more
Lego bricks! You can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Corey Gehman from Phoenix, Arizona Corey
has just gotten back into Lego building in March 2002
after a twenty year hiatus. The stimulus was a robotic
tape stacker he saw at a friend's home, but before he
could start the project, he became intrigued with Lego
castle possibilities. His model of Castle Rising in
England, completed May 12, 2002 was his first project. He's
also finished models of Bolton and Bunratty. He also sees
skyscrapers and sees them built in Lego! You can email
him at email@example.com and
also see his models at http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=25732.

Stephen Wroble from Michigan Stephen
is a middle aged college professor who teaches art
history as well as "interactive computer graphics",
which he translates as "game design". His wife
Karen is a writer and political analyst. Stephen's
website is at http://www.swroble.com/Castles/Castles.html. It's filled with
great games and graphics, as you would expect. Please
visit his website, and if you are inclined, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Steve's website currently features 18 castles, but all
the new ones seem to be computer generated.

Daniel Vallauri from southern France Dan
is a 34 year old Private Banker in Monte Carlo. He lives
nearby, but is Italian by birth. A self described "Legohaulic"
whose English is obviously excellent, he undertook one of
the most famous and largest (!) castles in the world for
his first project, the Krak des Chevaliers in Syria!!
Fifteen months in the building (and waiting for orders of
white Lego - like me with Neuschwanstein), the Krak was
completed on October 7, 2010. You won't believe it! His
second project is Belvoir Castle in Israel, another
famous Hospitaler castle from the Crusades. It received
second place in the Classic Castle Contest this year. The
winner was very nice, but Dan was robbed! You can email
him at email@example.com.
