Hello! I'm Lucas Gattuso. I'm a teacher at Luther Burbank Middle School in Burbank California. You can see what my students are working on at the Luther Media Lab.

Other, non-job things about me:

I'm a photographer. I started out with a little pocket point-and-shoot and worked my way up to a Nikon D800. You can find out more about my photography at dogwelder.com.

I like to record music and I have a decent enough voice, but have only bare-minimum ability to play any instruments. If you've got a song that uses G-C-D7, call me!

I'm a comic book geek. I can name at least seven forms of kryptonite (There are more than seven).

My favorite form of writing is sudden/flash fiction, but I also like long, twisty novels.

I have lived my entire life on the edges of the San Fernando Valley.

I have never been outside the continental United States.

I love riding the subway.

I married my high school sweetheart... twenty years after we broke up.

I think well-designed software doesn't force you to read a manual for most tasks.

I will gladly help you with the consumption of chocolate.

If you're here trying to find the stories that were on the old version of this site, they are archived in my old English portfolio.
