He was the first creative and expressive writing instructor for the Providence Clemente Veterans’ Initiative (PCVI).

Lucas spent several years teaching digital literacy, and in his current role in IT, he seeks to empower users as he helps them achieve their technology goals. In his free time, he enjoys scuba diving, working on multimedia projects, tinkering with all things tech, and exploring nature with his wife Carolyn and son Henrik.
