Luke is a transplant from the US who, after spending a year in Ecuador, followed his sense of adventure to Buenos Aires in 2012 and never looked back. He is a history buff, a story teller, a foodie, an art lover, and a bit of a wanderlust. Guided by his curious nature, his camera, and his bici (bike) he set out to unravel the history of his adopted home, and soon afterwards began to share his passion and knowledge for Buenos Aires with others. His favorite thing about Buenos Aires are it's cultural expressions, the city is saturated with culture you simply can't escape it- from breakdancing on the subway to opera in the Colón Theater, there's something for all tastes.Luke has an undergrad degree in International Commerce and Economics, and currently is completing his Master's studying Latin American Studies from the UNSAM University in Buenos Aires. He has a deep knowledge of the history of Buenos Aires, Argenti4na and the greater context of Latin America, he has also travelled the region extensively. When not showing others around the city he is probably researching for his thesis, biking through the city, trying out new recipes, keeping up on the city's street art scene, or off traveling somewhere.
