Hey! If you haven't already figured out, I'm Luke Layden!
I'm currently a senior at Boston College studying Biology and Film Studies. I started college just studying biology, but things change! Helping others has always been my main goal in life. For the longest time becoming a doctor was the only way I thought I could help people. Eventually, I came to the realization that film has had such a profound effect on my life. I knew I was not alone in my experience. I could follow my passion of film and have an effect on others with what I create.
I began acting on my passion for film and entertainment a few years ago. Not only do I take classes because I want to graduate, I make content on the side that you can see for yourself right on this website! Most notably, I write and create video content for my college's satire paper, The New England Classic.
While I do love making video content, volunteering with the Appalachia Volunteers of Boston College has been the most meaningful part of my college experience. The three service trips I have gone on, including one in 2018 to Detroit that I led, have taught me the importance of leaving my comfort zone and talking with other people. This year I am excited to be leading another trip in the spring, where I hope to continue to learn from those in the communities I enter.
What I'm Up To
What I'm watching: Of course I have a Letterboxd if you want to keep up with my complete film diary.
What I'm listening to: Whatever the Spotify algorithm is currently recommending.
What I'm playing: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! Because why would I want to be playing anything else?
What I'm studying: Java 8 for my Computer Science class and always trying to improve at Premiere and Photoshop.
