He maintains a professional and personal interest in communications technology and is actively engaged in social media and networking sites and frequently works with cutting edge media professionals.

In addition to Web skills, Glen is a talented writer, director and producer of film and video projects.

His short film “Pandora and Prometheus” premiered at the “Attack of the 50 Foot Reels” festival in Hollywood in Oct. 2009.
