    Luke is an extremely talented and dedicated individual. I worked with Luke on a year long technical design project and he was a vital asset to our team. His technical expertise is vast and ranges from working with very low level kernel functions to using cutting edge web frameworks. He is also very skilled in technical communication including writing specifications and other technical documents. Without Luke's contribution our project would not have succeeded.
