About Luke

I have over 20 years of professional game development experience in lead positions; designer, producer, and art director. I've had to hire, train, teach, tutor, and cheer lead many individuals.

As a result I have over 12 published game titles (many more unpublished titles), 10 published nonfiction books on game development (many in their 2nd and 3rd editions), and I've written several novels. Two are part of a series picked up by a publisher and are high ranked on Amazon.

I am fluent in 3D Studio Max, Photoshop, Mudbox, and various game editors; Unreal 3, etc? iPhone and iPad development. I am extremely well-grounded in 3D modeling, 2D texture painting, and world building.

I've designed, built and maintained my own websites for decades. I am versatile professional offering a strong blend of skills in team building, management, production, and 2D/3D creation, modeling, and texturing.

I have a list of published nonfiction books that have all performed well. Several are in second and third editions. My best selling book is 3D Game Textures and that is in its fourth edition. I have also written several fictional novels that have been picked up by a publisher and are doing very well. I am working on the third in a series.

I've used Photoshop since version 3. I was a beta tester for several versions as I've written and published books on Photoshop. I've done almost everything with PS you can do professionally from creating game art, user interfaces, photo retouching and restoration, web design and development, graphic design, and creative art works.

I've used and published books on computers for two decades. Contact me to see if I can help you. I was a very poor student growing up and know what it's like to struggle in school.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I've used Photoshop for decades for a variety of purposes. I've written books on it. And I've been a beta tester for a few years.

General Computer

I have been using computers for over twenty years. I've master many software packages and operating systems. I've built my own computers and setup small networks.

Microsoft Outlook

I've used Microsoft Outlook for years on both Mac and PC. I've run companies and managed art departments using Outlooks features from email, contacts, calendar, and its integration with other Microsoft Office software. I've had to backup and maintain the databases, manage the organization of the folder structures, setup the email accounts, and teach individuals new to Outlook how to use it.

Microsoft Word

I've started using word processors when WordPerfect was the big deal. Decades ago I started writing on a Compaq "portable" with a 5 inch monochrome screen. I switched over to Word pretty early on and have written many full length nonfiction and fiction books using Word. I've used several versions of Word up to the present one.

Reading

I've read since I was 4. I'm a commercially successful published author. I still read more than the average adult.

Video Production

I have a degree in video production. I run a production company with my wife. I have worked on numerous video productions in various capacities. I have an HBO credit as an assistant producer.

Writing

I'm not a grammarian but I know how to write. I have written many nonfiction and fiction works that have all been professionally edited and published. I am specifically most effective at helping writers break writer's block and showing them how to organize and write a lengthy work such as a 100k plus word novel.
