Lukas Chin

Lukas is the Human Perfomance Center/Outdoor Education Fellow from upstate New York. He grew up going to an alternative experiential Waldorf school that emphasized education in the outdoors. After graduating with a BFA in Film from SUNY Purchase where he also pitched on the baseball team, Lukas worked as a physical education teacher in Guangzhou, China for a year. The pandemic brought him back to the U.S. where he delved into his love of the outdoors and hiked both the Pacific Crest Trail and Appalachian Trail. Lukas has also worked as an early childhood teacher and paraprofessional at the Otto Specht School in New York and has worked at and led numerous youth nature camps. Lukas is often found either playing hacky-sack or looking for his hacky-sack because he misplaced it. He holds a special place in his heart for eating fish and looks forward to Friday night fish dinner at Eagle Rock!
