While he was busy playing his heart out on the court, “What’s next?” often echoed in his head. The daunting task every college graduate faces once they finish school is trying to figure what their next move is, and with everything Luke has ever known being organized around sports, he knew he had to find a way to stay in sports. So by leveraging the infinite connections he had amassed over his athletic career, he began a digital marketing agency that would soon grow to be one of the most prominent agencies on the east coast.
