Welcome! My name is Mr. Luck, while majoring in Theatre and minoring in Musical Theatre at UNCG, I was employed with radio stations Rock 92.3 WKRR/ 107.5 WKZL and earlier interned at The Dispatch of Lexington, NC. Outside of the Media/Broadcasting business, I have freelanced in Regional Theatre since 2015 at Triad Stage, The Lost Colony, Paper Lantern Theatre Company, and GTCC Performing Arts Center as an Actor and Theatre practitioner. I have obtained certifications with the Society of American Fight Directors and Actors Equity.
Originally from High Point, NC, I am a former 3 sport athlete in football, baseball, and basketball/wrestling while I participated in Marching Band, Indoor Percussion Ensembles, Chorus, and Theatre Arts programs. I’m a firm believer Arts programs and Athletics shape our learners.
I graduated from Ledford Senior High School in 2015 and attended Western Carolina University and UNCG from 2015-2018. Since graduating, I have been employed through GCS beginning in August of 2019 and a graduate of the Guilford County Schools Alternative Certification Track in 2021 obtaining my K-12 License in Theatre Arts. My first year of teaching I had the pleasure of working at Parkview Village Elementary school before transferring to the great community of Northwest Guilford.
Outside of being an Educator, I enjoy CrossFit, during the summer break I am devoted to education and teaching our youth. I enjoy traveling with my fiancé Tatum, and we reside here in the Piedmont Triad of NC. I am looking forward to teaching you this school year.
