Glenn believes that most editors can trace their roots back to music. Naturally, this phenomenal editor and motion graphic artist is also a seasoned drummer and music producer. His career progression through linear editing, early Avid days, and now the host of production tools from Adobe and Apple, has ultimately created his musical palette. A nationally ranked mountain biker and telemark skier, Glenn is always in motion, even when he's still. His work includes editing promos, opens, and long-form projects for TBS, PBS, History Channel, Fox Health Network, WB, and others. Still known to lay down some tasty beats when the need arises, perhaps Glenn's great attitude is the result of doing the things he loves, all the time.
