Hi I'm Luke, a dedicated and creatively driven footwear designer with over a decade of experience working within the sporting goods and fashion industry. If I was to sum myself up in 10 simple statements, they would read as follows...

- I love to create , it is when I am most happy, I am lucky to do what I do daily.

- My best ideas often occur whilst I am in solitude, or, during a run through the forest, I like to be in nature it is when my mind is most free.

- I believe things that are acceptable to the masses are generally mediocre, I never settle for mediocre.

- I detest loud mouths, know-it-alls and a closed mind mentality.

- I like to question the status quo and challenge conventional thinking. I see things from perspectives others do not, I also seek to look at things from others point of view.

- I am sometimes guilty of pursuing perfection, I can obsess over the smallest detail, but I know how to get things done.

- I attribute curiosity as one of my greatest assets, and look for inspiration in many different places.

- I like to help and see others succeed; my ambition is to make a positive and lasting impact on our industry.

- Failure has not stopped me from trying again; I’ve learned that sometimes when we lose we can also win.

- All of this has allowed me to become the person and designer I am today.
