Hey, I'm Luke!

Portland, Oregon

Hey I'm Luke! I'm a film director, screenwriter, and consummate filmmaker. I've been making films for 15 years now. I've worked in nearly every department with work I've filmed ending up on IFC, Discovery, as well as editing projects for brands like Adobe, Apple, Nike, and more. 

As a screenwriter I've placed in dozens of contests including PAGE, NYC Midnight, Emerging Screenwriters, and more. I won best horror feature screenplay at HorrOrigins in 2021. 

I really enjoy directing because I get to have my hands in every department while empowering them to do their best work. As an actor myself, I've taught and performed improv comedy around the globe from New Zealand to Scotland studying with folks from UCB, Second City, Second City, MI Westside, and more. 

My work tends to be in Comedy and Horror. Sometimes a mix of the two. I really like the cathartic building of tension and releasing it through laughter or horror.
