Famous Person

For this assignment, we had shoot a portrait of someone who has had media attention but is not affiliated with BU.  Examples were writers, politicians, professional athletes, musicians, etc.  A story must have been published on this person. For my famous person, I picked a friend, Luke Sorenson. He is the founder of two apps and was involved in the Chelsea Bombings last September.

Luke Sorenson-1
Luke Sorenson at Google in NYC on March 25th 2017. He is 22 years old and the co-founder of two social media apps. Luke is the co-founder of the apps Downtyme and Mixer. Downtyme was created in 2014, and is an app to match your free time with your friends and making scheduling easier. Mixer was launched this past summer and is a variation on a social media/ dating app. Luke works full time at Google in NYC while working on his apps on the side. Luke was also involved in the Chelsea Bombing, in Sept of 2016. Him and his 3 roommates from Boston University, were walking to dinner when the bomb detonated. One man lost his two front teeth, two men suffered hearing loss and lacerations to their back and legs. Luke walked away with minimal damage besides a scar on his upper right leg. http://dailyfreepress.com/2014/11/19/bu-startup-places-first-in-inter-collegiate-tech-competition/ https://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/23/nyregion/new-york-city-bombing-victims.html
