Luke moved to Geelong in August 2016 to look for work and was successful in gaining a tiling apprenticeship through Gforce Employment Solutions in November 2016. Luke loves his apprenticeship and trade, he says it can be stressful, but the camaraderie with the other tradesmen, is something he enjoys and he likes the satisfaction when completing a job really well with quality work.
