He still resides in the neighborhood with his wife, Jenn, their two daughters, Leah and Taylor, and their son, Lincoln.
Luke and his family enjoy the array of activities of Western New York during all the seasons of the year; whether it
be enjoying some springtime soccer matches at the picturesque Delaware Park, exploring the Buffalo Zoo or the Buffalo
waterfront during summer, taking a hike in the Outer Harbor in the crisp fall air, or a snowy walk down the lively Elmwood
Avenue during the winter months. Luke and his family also appreciate spending some family time on the beaches and
the shores of Lake Erie during summer, as well as taking bike rides along the streets and trails of the area. Luke also
roots on the Bills and Sabres, enjoys taking in an occasional round of golf with friends, clients, and colleagues, appreciates
a good jog through the neighborhood, and tries to absorb the plentiful opportunities that our great region has to offer.
