Luke and his family enjoy an array of activities in 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 at 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 family time on the beaches and shores of Lake Erie during the summer, as well as riding bikes along the area's streets and trails. Luke also roots on the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, and Toronto Raptors, 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.
