After years of direct service in the classroom and the non-profit sector, I tired of seeing so many organizations and people do great work – but do a terrible job of celebrating it.
Luke spent years in the college access space, including leading a really great STEM-based CBO in Chicago (Illinois Tech Global Leaders). His projects for College Greenlight include work related to branding, storytelling, and CBO/college collaboration.
Luke is an active listener and storyteller who during interviews asks thoughtful questions, probes for greater understanding and vividly portrays what is described to him. He organized an enormous amount of data and information into a comprehensive book draft, including a relatable and usable format. He captured the entirety of our project in a compelling overview that created a positive and visceral reaction in me.
Luke was selected from a pool of over 500 highly qualified tutors and academic specialists to author an SSAT preparation guide for our company from start to finish. My choice was quickly reinforced the moment he turned in his guide outline. Not only was the content academically rigorous and thorough, the tone he used to connect with the reader was effective and highly amenable to its ultimate use – as a guide to help student in grade school learn and enter the high school of their choice.

Aspects of his guide were incorporated into guides previously authored by different individuals, as his insight was applicable to many exams. His ability to engage in the project independently, hit deadlines on time, and produce content that needed very little editing was a great service to our company. His project was submitted well before the ultimate deadline, giving plenty of time to undertake small revisions and incorporate constructive feedback. Not only was his content of the utmost quality, his communication was timely and he was never too busy to check in and update me on progress, making him a true pleasure to work with.
