Hello! I'm Luke.
I currently study Visual Effects (VFX) at Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts in Los Angeles, developing my skills and exploring new concepts in many aspects of visual storytelling. My goal is for each project that I work on to be more innovative than the last.
The projects featured on this website offer a glimpse into the imaginative world of content creation that I passionately pursue. I hold my work to the highest standards, and will settle for nothing less than my best effort. I believe in visuals being used not to solely "look cool", but to aid the story, message, or theme of the project. This can be done subtly, extravagantly, or anything in-between.
In my work, I aspire to glorify God through the content I produce. I believe that the truest satisfaction comes from Christ, and I am enthusiastic to share my faith and love through the work I do.
If you have any questions, comments, or advice, I would love to hear from you!
