Growing up on a ranch in northern British Columbia, Luke developed a passion for agriculture at an early age. After graduating from Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s horticulture program in 2001, with a specialty in greenhouse production, Luke launched his career on Canada’s West Coast.
Luke is thrilled to be working in the emerging hemp industry. He is particularly interested in the commercial production requirements of hemp cultivation for food and fibre.
With a keen sense for business and an entrepreneurial spirit, Luke has owned and operated a variety of businesses on southern Vancouver Island, most recently serving as owner and CEO of Access West, an office equipment supplier in Victoria, B.C.
On his down time, Luke can be found camping and fishing at his favourite nature spots on Vancouver Island or tending to his veggie garden at his home in Sooke, B.C., where he lives with wife and two young children.
