At Saint Luke we're all about making the most of each day - pushing boundaries, loving life and exploring the world.  If there's anyone who embodies all these qualities, it's our pal André de Mello. Born in Brazil, André is a talented filmmaker who travels the world creating content for luxury hotels.  We sat down with him to find out a bit more.
