Being in the right place at the right time can have its’ advantages. Glenn was scouted by producer Dänna Wilberg at a rock concert. “You look like a drug dealer”, she told him, and from there he went into an acting career. His first part was a non-speaking role in "The Push", a film about three generations of women who have telekinesis. Glenn next landed a role in the thrilling, Gary Nyland's "Fatal Flaw", in which he plays a self appointed Preacher of Death. Now he’s back as an armed robber in "Little Thieves".
Glenn’s new-found love of acting influenced his oldest daughter who cast him in a production for her Digital Media class. He wowed the students with a performance as a pissed off father who angrily destroys his daughter’s bottles of hair gel with a chainsaw. It was her talent though that put her video in first place by a large margin.
Glenn would like to thank his employer, Lake Family Resource Center (LFRC) www.lakefrc.org, for their flexibility in allowing him the time to pursue his acting career and get to the sets. Being a former tobacco user, Glenn is working with youth coalitions who advocate for more strict ordinances to reduce exposure to second hand smoke, and reduce the availability of tobacco to minors through supporting and implementing retail licensing ordinances. One of LFRC’s Tobacco Education Program’s main goals is to convince filmmakers to remove tobacco use in movies since they have such an influence on young children and adolescents.
