Plain and simple, I love genre film. I'm drawn to projects with unlikely heroes, strong dilemmas, and altered realities.
Born & raised in the Pacific Northwest, Luke was just 6 years old he broke his family’s TV and changed his life forever. His parents believed there were better ways to entertain a child and decided not replace it. So Luke explored the woods, read encyclopedias, and played with LEGOs. Everyday he imagined new worlds and learned to tell his own stories. This love of storytelling led him to study cinema & digital art at San Francisco State University. By the time he graduated Magna Cum Laude he had made over 20 short films and interned for a documentary film editor. After a brief, but memorable, stint as a Pizza Chef in South Lake Tahoe, he moved to Los Angeles where he’s worked as an: extra, PA, camera operator, AD, producer, editor, falconer, writer and director. Recently he finished his latest film, a post-apolyptic sci-fi short entitled, SUNDOWN TRAIL.
