Luke studied film at Falmouth University and since graduating has been involved in a number of film and theatre projects across the South West.

He has previously written several plays, including Breathe With Me (Hall for Cornwall, 2011) and Sanctuary (Theatre Royal Plymouth, 2013), and in 2011 his screenplay Keep Calm was shortlisted for the Nick Darke award.
