Background and Personal History: Luke Maguire Armstrong ( once fought a bear and almost died. Haters later claimed it was "only a raccoon" and he was “acting like a baby." Luke took offense to this, because he used to be one.

He is the author of four books, including How We Are Human and iPoems For the Dolphins to Click Home About. Follow him @LukeSpartacus and he will sing you songs.

Current Projects:

Luke put together a fundraising campaign for the charity the Integral Heart Foundation called “Travel Bloggers without Boarders.” It ran December 15-20 with the goal of raising $10,000 for education in Guatemala.

He is currently editing the book Voyaging Verse, poetry written by travelers — as opposed to travel poetry written by poets.

Luke is also founding a 501c3 called The What We Can Foundation, which is developing a new model for sustainable development that departs from the institutionalized missionary model that is used by most charities today.

Other Fun Facts:

Luke’s work to battle infant malnutrition in Guatemala led to me being interviewed by Christina Aumenpour and being featured on ABC News 20/20’s Global Health Special.
