Luke Shillington

Luke Shillington, whitewater guide for ARTA river tripsIf it wasn't for his cool summer job as a river guide, Luke would be a nerd. He had a 4.2 GPA and was a member of the National Honors Society in High School in Sedona, Arizona; he graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University with a BS in Geography and he is currently teaching Geography 416A (that's basic Computer Cartography without Spatial Analysis for all you non-nerds out there) while pursuing his Masters in Geography and Water Policy from the University of Arizona. Chess Club anyone? If he hadn't taken a Yampa trip when he was eight and fallen in love with the river, he'd be pale, lonely and gainfully employed right now.
