My self-summary
Hi. I’m Luke.

Sometimes I eat while driving, even steering with my knees, but I’ve never gotten into a car accident. I’ve finally accepted that more of us don’t know what they want to do when they grow up than those who do. I’m quiet and introspective but that doesn't mean I'm not reacting to what’s being said or going on around me. I'm quite talkative around people I know well. And I can start a sentence with "and" without feeling bad about it.

I like running.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching and a doctoral student at the University of Kansas.

I also tutor online for tutor.com and finished a Master's in math at Purdue Calumet.
