Psh, I'm happy with my job, my college is all set in a year... Besides, there are 6 LEGO certified professionals in the world, what are the chances LEGO would certify a seventh. I just want to build with other LEGO enthusiasts (I get lonely building by myself sometimes!), particularly those interested in urban landscapes, cities, towns, architecture, etc. I've been reading up on the LUG groups and Train groups, they all seem to be heavily city orientated, maybe I'll check one out. By the way, this is wonderful. I've been wondering, do you prefer the studded road look over the tiled look? Or do you make them studded for a different reason. Most people on mocpages seem to like tiled roads much better then studded roads, however I like my roads studded because it fits my city's atmosphere better (like in your Greenwich Village model), tiled roads seem too "clean" if that makes sense.

Ah, This is wonderful! Do you need to be a Lego Certified Professional to have a buisness with lego? Or atleast does it help?
You don't need to be a LEGO Certified Professional to have a LEGO-related business. There are lots of people that have Bricklink stores, or who sell commissions, or who host events, and they don't have a relationship with The LEGO Group at all. But as a LEGO Certified Professional, I can work more closely with the company, which can be useful in many ways. You can read a bit more at http://www.seankenney.com/about/certified_professional/
