Our Laner of the week, Luka Fric has been on the Lane for a year and a half. He’s an outstanding brand ambassador who is always willing to work. His dedication and drive have made him one of our go-to Laners in NYC. Luka’s favorite event on the Lane was the Zoolander 2 event where our Laners dressed up in silver suits and portrayed their best blue steel in front of camera. Luka enjoys the diversity of the events he’s staffed on cause it always keeps things fresh.
Originally from Slovenia, Luka now resides in the big apple. In Slovenia, Luka’s family is in the balloon business. Luka’s hidden talent is the ability to make balloon decorations. He even has a balloon Christmas tree for his apartment.
Outside the Lane Luka is an actor and a singer. He has been a part of Speakeasy Dollhouse (immersive theatre) since April 2015. He enjoys acting and occasionally modeling. You can check out some of his work at www.lukafric.com.
