Luke and his wife, Tonya, reside in the Midland area and have two children, Madaline and Gavin. Luke enjoys spending free time with his family traveling to explore new areas and pursuing his passions for adventure, family fun, tennis and scuba diving.
 
Professional Experience
Luke began his career in November 2008 with Edward Jones where he spent seven years helping clients define financial goals, develop strategies and measure progress.  In 2015, Luke joined the team of Upstream Investment Partners and brokerage firm SIgma Financial Corporation.  Soon after his transition, Luke initiated and organized the launch of Upstream's first Midland branch office where he continues his business today, strengthening relationships with clients and other professionals in the community.
 
Sigma Financial Corporation
As a registered representative of Sigma Financial Corporation, Luke is able to offer clients some of the best names and one of the largest product-service platforms in the financial industry.  Sigma uses an "open architecture" platform which provides clients with complete freedom to choose the cost structure and investment path that is right for them.  Further, Sigma does not have any of their own proprietary products; they only work with outside investment companies, allowing representatives to offer a wide variety of solutions to clients.
 
Approach
As a Senior Financial Advisor, Luke utilizes a discplined approach and builds relationships with clients. Understanding an individual's needs and goals is important whether it be saving for specific goals such as retirement, college education funding, a second home, providing an income plan at retirement or death, or managing risk and taxes.  Luke's relationships with other local professionals, such as CPA's and attorneys, enables him to effectively coordinate information and services between these professionals for his clients.
