Luke has an unique mix of excellent problem solving ability and skill set. He is very operational focused and has innovative continuous improvement ideas in his mind all the time. It is an absolute pleasure to work under his direct influence. He is an able mentor with a lot of patience. He would definitely be a great asset for any company he works for.


Ken Reddy

Ken Reddy. Chief Information Officer at Canstar.

Luke was a legend, he came on as a grad and quickly made an impact, he took it upon himself to get his AWS certification and was always his direct line manager’s choice to work on projects with exec exposure because she knew he would represent the team well and get the job done.


Kimberley Manning

Kimberley Manning. Site Reliability Engineer Manager at Canstar.

Luke joined my team as a graduate but quickly became a core member of the SRE team at Canstar during a period of rapid growth. He threw himself into absorbing all he could about AWS & cloud engineering, and it was great to have someone on my team who was so invested in continuing to learn, grow from feedback, and improve our systems. Luke was happy to take on many different projects and one of his greatest strengths was his ability to work with people from across the business, translating business requirements into technical solutions. He was a great asset to our team.
