Luke is a published author, plant-based athlete and entrepreneur. He champions individuals to live a fit and healthy plant-based lifestyle.
After watching a documentary on animal cruelty, he turned vegan overnight. Having been a 1kg a day meat eating bodybuilder and strength coach, the paradigm shift in thinking challenged him to relearn what he thought he knew about food.
Luke went on to be certified in plant-based nutrition. He has then coached and brought plant-based fitness models to competition. To further advocate empowered and conscious living, Luke has since published the book “A.W.A.K.E and Alive: Harness your physical and mental potential through a plant-based lifestyle”.
As an athlete, Luke has competed as a vegan and placed in natural bodybuilding competitions in Australia, and in the US with team Plantbuilt. In 2017, he competed with Plantbuilt again as a CrossFit athlete.
As an entrepreneur, Luke’s journey started with forming Evolved Generation a brand based in Australia comprising of plant-based athletes, entrepreneurs and health professionals. Now based in Singapore Luke is also the founder of Live Green Live Lean. Both brands promote plant-based health, fitness and athleticism. His latest project was being the co-host of the Plant Fit Summit.
Luke's vision is to create a culture of fit, healthy and conscious individuals, being the change they wish to see in the world.
