My name is Timothy Sterkel and I am the founder and owner of Republic Bricks.
I started building LEGOs back in 2009, when I was 9 years old. I started selling LEGOs in 2013 to make money -- to buy more LEGOs. I debuted as a LEGO Star Wars MOC page, and eventually transitioned over to RepublicBricks. Through the account RepublicBricks, I became the first creator to hold live Instagram auctions and super sales on my story.
Due to the growing nature of this company, I recruited my dad, Mike, to work full time for Republic Bricks. My sister, Tracy, also helps out. On top of them, we also have a team of about 10 in charge of sorting parts for the sets you all love so much!
