As a child in Australia Luke found a home, a great equalizer, and an obsession that would shape his life forever. The Ocean.
His love affair with the sea started while tracking down sharks with his father at 5 years old and being fed a steady diet of Jacques Cousteau documentaries. Guided by the universal language of the water he’s spent the past 30+ years in, on or under the surface, experiencing its gifts and brutalities.
His oceanic work has spanned the globe focusing heavily on sharks and marine education. His international conservation and policy work has been recognized for outstanding contribution by the Humane Society of the United States.
As a producer and TV host Luke has hosted hosting two major network survival game shows, multiple Shark Week documentaries on Discovery Channel, and series for Travel channel and Snapchat. He currently hosts the weekly Nature Minute and Shark Week podcasts for Discovery as well as producing his high altitude family travel series 'Nature is Fly'.
A passionate creative at heart he is equal parts scientist, adventurer and entertainer. Tipple hopes that his adventures, shared with millions, will not only entertain but inspire the next generation of ambassadors for the planet.
