Hi. I'm Luke.

I'm a filmmaker and writer. I'm also kinda good at ultimate frisbee.


Study Breakage

I wrote, directed, and edited a short film about three college students having conversations that span a variety of topics, from sleep schedules to frisbee, from dating to the Boer War-when they really should be studying.


I edited and colored the short film Kalika, which follows a dancer as she struggles to follow her passion amidst cutthroat field.

40 Years of Steve Pinkston

I produced and edited a documentary about the first ever Black teacher to work at my high school, and the legacy of spirit and service he inspired during his tenure.
