I was homeschooled with Sonlight as it was developed from 1st through 8th grade. I then attended a public high school and graduated Valedictorian with somewhere around 19-21 Letters (swimming, cross country, academics, band, track, forensics...).
I then attended Biola University with academic and swimming scholarships. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Mass Comm department with a degree in Motion Picture Production and the "Best Independent Filmmaker" award.
I moved to Englewood, married my college sweetheart Brittany, started my own production company, and produced videos for Sonlight (including MathTacular).
Brittany and I were in the process of adopting children, and so I needed something with slightly more reliability and benefits than working as an Independent Contractor could afford. Thus, I applied for the role of "Media Relations Specialist" at Sonlight Curriculum where I now blog daily, and produce podcasts and videos among other things.
While waiting on the adoption, we took in two girls for many months. After they went back to their parents, and with start of 2011, our adoption journey ended.
We've covered the "Filmmaker" and "Empty Nester" bits of my signature line, so what about the "Writer" part?
Well, I am blogging daily. I'm also a published author. And I'm working on a completely different book with my best friend from college.

Why not put all that in my profile?
1. It's rather long.
2. I also run a media production mentoring blog/site at Production-Now.com, and this profile information doesn't much apply.
So, there it is: Luke Holzmann's biography in about 500 words.
Please feel free to ask about whatever else if you're interested in learning more.
