Meet Our Gear Specialists - Luke
Get to Know Luke
Luke grew up around the flat farmlands of southern New Jersey. He experienced the outdoors as a kid by enjoying fishing trips and car camping with his dad and brother, building forts from fallen trees, and playing in the woods where he was happy to roam the flat, marshy woodlands of Salem County.
Luke’s college experience exposed him to indoor climbing for the first time, which promptly led to climbing outdoors and traveling to popular (and not so popular) climbing destinations around southern Pennsylvania. The more he climbed outside, the more he enjoyed it. The whole climbing experience quickly blossomed into a broader passion for the outdoors and everything else that encompasses it. After a few trips to Grand Teton National Park, the outdoor lifestyle became almost like an addiction to him. Luke’s future views are set on backcountry adventures throughout the United States, especially in the high peaks of the west.
