Luke tends to sweep ladies off their feet with his excellent guitar skills. He has a subtle and warm voice and makes a fabulous singer. He also believes in standing up against any form of bullying. Since in his own past he has encountered plenty of it, he hopes to make others strong enough to not encourage bullying.

He loves the color blue. He is also a camera freak and loves taking selfies. He loves his brothers and the trio shares a strong bond. However, he doesn’t like people confusing him for his twin, as he has a competitive streak and wants to be known for himself.
