It's easy to write off models and actors as pretty faces with not a lot behind them. But if that's what you think about Luke Gulbranson, you couldn't be more wrong. On this episode of The Out East Vibes Podcast, we sit down with the man himself to see just what makes him tick, how he got to where he's at today, what's next on the horizon, and more.
Of course, on this podcast, we've got a rep. for digging deep and unearthing facts about our guests that only few people know, and that's no exception here. For example, how many of you out there know what Luke majored in in college? If you've got this impression of him as a typical hockey jock, the answer is going to shock / impress you.
But moreover, this being a Hamptons-focused podcast, we couldn't help but get into the surprising parallels between life out east and life in rural Minnesota (yes, there are parallels there...) and there may just be some video content of a motorcycle ride through Montauk possibly coming to you Summer 2021.
Beyond all that, if there's one good reason to listen to this ep., it's the story of a guy who just sets his sights on goals and does anything and everything he can to achieve them. It's a story of grit, ambition, and a willingness to do the work, day in and day out. If you're feeling in any way down about the future, this is the one thing you just absolutely need to hear.
