Proudly born and raised in Norwich, on the east coast of England, Luke takes huge amounts of pride in both his origin and his adopted home in New York City. After completing his High School education in the U.K., Luke spent four years in Chicago where he studied Journalism and Mass Media whilst captaining the Men’s Soccer team. During those years he adopted a love for College Admissions and the privilege of helping young adults discover where their gifts and passions align.

In 2007, upon graduation, Luke joined The King’s College Admissions team where he has witnessed a dramatic growth in the size of the college year-on-year and now takes great delight in leading the admission team on a daily basis. He works to offer careful and personalized, high-quality service to prospective families, with a primary focus on the west coast. He also manages the Inviso visit weekends, which help a huge percentage of the incoming class to explore King’s.

A self-described “football geek”, Luke spends spare time watching, playing and writing about football (soccer). Supporting his home-team Norwich City Football Club has provided many of the highest and lowest days he’s known, but Luke insists, “It’s easy to support a winning team, but that’s not real life. True pleasure comes from staying the course, amidst both the joys and the struggles.”
