7 Years of Editing Luke

With each year this site has become more of what I dreamed it would be when I started it back in 2007. Part photo journal, part video archive, part general scrapbook, what I think a lot of people don't realize is that the reason I invest so much energy into Editing Luke is because it's been proven that what I share here can actually change my life. 

From the opportunities that have directly presented themselves to the impression that having a site like this can make on so many people that I've never met, the fundamental reason that Editing Luke has continued to work for me is because I crave the challenge it presents and have a strong desire to make the most my time. The need to grow, share, and entertain myself has always been a driving force for why I do what I do. Put simply, this has been fun for me. 

The name Editing Luke stemmed from my time as a film student with a focus on post-production, but that also went hand in hand with actually editing how I viewed myself and the work I was producing. I've always strived to put my best foot forward, and have acknowledged many times that what you see here is often a work in progress. I've learned a lot in 7 years, and that experience has continued to fuel my curiosity and further motivated me to explore my creativity in increasingly ambitious ways. I'm not reinventing the wheel here, but I am keeping it rolling.

Editing Luke has grown to over 1600 posts that have seen hundreds of thousands of views, contributing to over 1.52 million online video views for my work. The point is that the rewards have come from persistence, and to think that I could have missed out on so many opportunities had I not decided to do all of this is the best excuse I have for not stopping. Thank you for being part of the journey. Here's to 7 years!
