Luke’s done a little bit of everything in his short life. And we’re not kidding! He raced cars on national television, started companies, acted on national television and in motion pictures, sang the national anthem at major sports venues, assisted major bands while traveling on their international tours, and produced large events all before turning 21!
From a young age, Luke impressed business professionals with his entrepreneurial spirit and business abilities. Luke founded his first company when he was 12. The organization, a unique youth sports league, gained attention of local news agencies and corporate sponsors. Just two years after starting the league, Luke was given the chance to expand it throughout the southeast.
In the following years, Luke pursued a professional acting and music career. He was featured on an episode of “As the World Turns” on CBS, the movie “Blue Like Jazz”, and filmed a major supporting role in a movie with Tray Chaney of HBO’s The Wire, Tila Tequila of MTV, and Nick “little Hulk” Hogan.
Musically, Luke performed on television shows and enjoyed airplay on several radio stations in the southeast – including a top-40 radio station in Columbia, SC. He also co-produced a concert and creative event that sold over 1000 tickets. In 2012, Luke was asked to tour with Building 429, (the number one band in Christian music at the time according to Billboard) and helped handle their merchandising and fan relations.
While Luke has successfully pursued many unique things in life, it was always his skill for business and marketing that lead him to succeed – whether in music, acting, sports, marketing, or in a variety of more standard business sectors.
This same passion lead him to start Blue Ivory with his now-wife Kathryn. Their desire is to give other entrepreneurs resources that they wish they had in their past pursuits. Through Blue Ivory, the couple has opened the door for more small business owners to pursue their own passions. Luke’s vision for the company is to reach thousands of business owners and give them the tools they need to succeed.
