Lucas is excited to use his oddly extensive knowledge of Scandinavia at Borton Overseas! Born in California and migrated to Minnesota in middle school, he received his double B.A. in Theater Arts and Scandinavia Studies from the University of North Dakota – where he studied abroad at both The University of Oslo and The International Summer School of Oslo. As a proud Norwegian-American, Lucas has roots in Trøndelag and is very active with the Nordic-American community in the Twin Cities. Although he has traveled all over Europe, Norway will always have a special part in his heart with Iceland and Estonia nestled close by.
As a theater artist, Lucas has worked as a stage director, costume designer, Norwegian translator, dramaturg and arts manager for various theater companies in Minnesota and Norway.
