While faced with numerous barriers as a deaf person, he learned how to persevere by self-advocating for solutions. Luke currently works at the Colorado Commission for the Deaf and Hard of hearing, and provides training and consultation on topics such as effective communication, linguistic competencies, law and regulations, effective access to programs and services and more for Colorado stakeholders, including state and local agencies, community-based organization and places of public accommodations.
