Glen was born and raised in the sleepy costal town of Pacific Grove, CA. In 1985 his parents bought him his first Mac which pretty much determined his future career path. Moving to Southern California in 1991, he attended California Institute of the Arts, earning a BFA and an appreciation for typography and a good night's sleep.
After graduating, Glen remained in Los Angeles and freelanced for a number of years gaining experience from a wide range of work, including corporate branding and identity, packaging, movie posters, signage, and textile design. He has had the opportunity to work with clients such as Nike, The Getty Center, Disney, and Maverick Records. In 2000, he landed permanently at Smog where he has been able to further expand his skills.
At Smog, Glen specializes in typography, logos, book design, and retail packaging, with an absurd attention to detail. He revels in the challenge of seeking the perfect combination of imagery and personality that epitomizes a client's brand. He's been professionally recognized by the AIGA, Communication Arts, The Grammys® and Print. He has also lectured to students at universities over the past few years.
When not designing, Glen can be spotted chauffeuring his dogs around town developing a golden trucker's tan.
