    Growing up in Connecticut, a love of the outdoors was cultivated in Luke from a young age, as he spent most of his time on the water exploring its coast. His mother, a laboratory scientist and master naturalist, and his father, a fine-woodworker and sailor, enrolled him in Audubon summer camps, encouraged and nurtured his fishing skills, and allowed for hours of uninterrupted time in the woods. Throughout high school and college Luke worked as a first mate on a classic Sportfishing vessel out of Montauk, NY.
