He attended Colorado State University where he studied Natural Resource Management and Watershed Science. Luke has worked for the US Forest Service, Yakama Nation Fisheries Program and most recently at Wildlands Restoration Volunteer in CO, where he continues to pursue his interest in implementing stream restoration projects.
