Tomatometer-approved critic
Biography:

Luke was first published at the age of ten, when his poem “I Hate Mustard” was included in a children's book. His first movie reviews were for USC's student radio station. After graduating, he reviewed for the zines AteBall and KnifEdge while working at Laemmle's Sunset 5. Answering an ad in New Times LA, he got hired as a film critic and assistant arts editor, and has written and edited ever since. Publications Luke has written for include the LA Weekly, LA Times, E! Online, Forbes, and many more. As a writer and editor for GeekChicDaily, he was instrumental in the newsletter's growth to buy and merge with Nerdist. As contributor for Deadline, he was the first major trade reporter to cover San Diego Comic-Con panel-by-panel. And as editor-in-chief of Voice Media's Topless Robot, he moved to change the name to The Robot's Voice and increase the diversity of contributors and content. He has also appeared in documentaries as “himself,” and acted in direct-to-video horror.
