Ciao! I'm Luke.

When I studied abroad in Italy several years ago, I never thought that it would completely change my life. I fell in love with the amazing people, culture, food, and of course, the Italian language. I was in Florence, Italy for the first few months of my language journey learning only some Italian. After my time there, I spent the rest of that first year back home teaching myself everyday. I poured my heart and soul into Italian and became fluent within a year. I taught myself a couple more languages since then, Spanish and French, and right now I'm learning Chinese! I now want to help people learn Italian and experience everything that I have.

I’m a language lover and someone trying to make an impact on the world. Speaking more than one language has allowed me to taste the fruits of encountering new people, discovering exotic places, and experiencing life in ways only speaking English, could have never taken me.

I want to help people expand their horizons and deepen the human connection we all share with one another. People are my passion and hearing the stories we all have to tell. Let me share mine with you and I can’t wait to hear yours.

Learn why I love language so much!

NEW LENS ON LIFE

To learn another language is like viewing the world through a different colored lens. You see things in a whole new way and begin to expand the human connection on a global level.

EXPRESSION OF SELF

They say when you learn a new language, you gain a second soul. Whether it’s experiencing romance like the French, cooking like an Italian, or going full Zen like the Chinese; become a whole new you.

AUTHENTIC TRAVEL

Dive into real cultural immersion and get away from the traps of tourism. Venture outside your comfort zone and taste the forbidden fruits of new adventures off the beaten path.

I will show you how to not only speak another language, but open your world in whole new ways!
