Growing up the winters on Long Island meant crafting and projects in the basement for warmth, so with the light shining through the windows like Grand Central Station and the smell of freshly cut lumber, he happily began his crafting and woodworking hobby. From the age of ten, Glenn worked with his neighbor, Sal or Mr. V., In his project woodworking patterns workshop, helping out all the way through college at Manhattan’s NY State FIT Packaging Design. With the combined efforts of Sal and his family’s mentoring and his love for the band, Rush, Glenn took the long-view approach.

Glenn has connected with friends in Connecticut, New York, Charlotte, and South Florida, and is still disappointed with the lack of block parties (You Always Fear What You Don’t Know). Glenn has raced BMX against the worlds fastest riders and sculptured memorable backyard BMX dirt trails.
