If Lucas ruled the world he would focus his energy on improving education and reducing child hunger.

Lucas grew up on a farm in Kansas and subsequently graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with an engineering degree. He then followed the sun to Southern California. His definition of success is happiness, and he derives his happiness through the time he spends with his wife and two children.
