Get To Know: Luke
I was born in Milwaukee and grew up in the suburbs until I moved to the twin cities in September of 2013. Growing up, my first love was baseball which I played for about 10 years. After watching several Brewers games at Miller Park I often dreamt of playing with then-rookies, JJ Hardy, Rickie Weeks, Prince Fielder, and Ryan Braun. I frequently imagined Bob Uecker announcing one of my home run slams with his iconic “Get up, get up, get out of here, gone!!” and seeing Bernie Brewer slide down the slide in celebration. As I got older and my athletic ability didn’t grow into the size of my sports dreams, my attention quickly turned to the grand piano in our living room which, other than learning a few songs that I would play over and over again annoying my whole family and probably the neighbors, I never learned how to play very well. However, I did develop a deep connection and love for music that still burns in me today. I directed that passion towards playing drums and percussion in our high school drumline, jazz band, and wind ensemble as well as several local youth orchestras and symphonic bands. I also formed a band with some friends called the “Last Minute Decisions” which lasted about 3 months and 3 poorly done covers of Godsmack, ACDC, and Three Days Grace before we went separate ways due to creative differences. My family consists of my Mom, Dad, and sister that is 4 years older than I (which she reminds me often.) I look forward to eventually moving out to the big sky country of Montana and spending much of my time learning to fly fish, snowmobiling, backpacking, hunting, dirt biking, ATVing, canoeing, eating great food, and being captivated by sunsets and the mountains.
