Hi, I’m Luke

Thank you for taking time to learn about me. Take a look around. Hopefully something I’m doing motivates or challenges you.

Why do I do what I do? Because I love helping. I love listening to people’s stories and how they came to where they are in life. I have a strong passion with hearing struggles and finding solutions. Especially creative ones. I hope that one of my ventures has helped you in some way and if not, what are your struggles? How can I help you?

Random Facts About Me:

I love food and occasionally will do eating competitions which I have yet to lose.
I’ve never used chapstick. I have two webbed toes on each foot.

LeagueAlly is league management software that was initially built for a local Kansas City adult recreational sports league which helped take it from 800 players to almost 4,000 in four years. The software efficiently automates the league process for league managers and players as well as connects participants through leagues as they travel from city to city. The product helps league managers organize leagues, equipment, umpires and players more efficiently, and provides a system that makes it easy for players to join and enjoy those leagues with as much automation as possible. LeagueAlly also addresses unused parks/fields by organizing that information and making it easier to network through recreational sports in new cities.
