Originally based in Melbourne, Australia, he was formerly a strength and conditioning coach for Australian Strength Performance. After watching a documentary on animal cruelty, he turned vegan overnight.

To further advocate empowered and conscious living, Luke has since published the book “A.W.A.K.E and Alive: Harness your physical and mental potential through a plant-based lifestyle”. As an athlete, Luke has competed as a vegan and placed in natural bodybuilding competitions in Australia, and in the US with team Plantbuilt. In 2017, he competed with Plantbuilt again as a CrossFit athlete.
