Wiki Biography: Born and raised in the Boston area, Glenn first came to public attention in 1994 as a UFO expert and unofficial spokesman for Area 51, the secret military base in the Nevada desert. If you have heard the name "Area 51", it is due in part to his successful efforts to publicize the base. In 1993, having found some modest success in computer software, Glenn moved to the tiny town of Rachel, Nevada to devote himself full-time to exploring this unacknowledged government facility. Featured in a major article in the New York Times Sunday magazine in 1994, Glenn soon hosted dozens of journalists and appeared in countless news broadcasts as an Area 51 expert. The highlight of his early television career was an appearance on "UFO Cover-Up Live", a live two-hour broadcast by Larry King from the desert outside the base. He also appeared on "The Montel Williams Show", several national news magazine shows, like "CBS Sunday Morning", and on the first paranormal TV series of the cable TV era, "Sightings" and "Encounters". In all his TV appearances, Glenn served as both as an on-screen expert and as an off-screen location fixer, supplying producers and film crews with essential information about the local area. Glenn helped many TV crews pull off complex expeditions in the remote desert with few hitches.Glenn withdrew from the public eye in the early 2000s to explore marriage and family but returned in 2009 as an on-screen guide and off-screen consultant for the Area 51 episode of the History Channel's "UFO Hunters", which became the highest rated episode of the series. Since then, Glenn has appeared on paranormal TV shows about once a year, mainly drawing upon his Area 51 expertise from the 1990s. (Glenn is no longer an active researcher.)A former airline employee and obsessive traveler, Glenn now lives continuously on the road. To further practice his television skills, Glenn has appeared in hundreds of his own YouTube videos, mostly related to travel and his personal philosophy. Glenn has visited some 49 countries and has over 30,000 travel photos on Facebook alone. Based on his travels and his extensive experience with film crews, Glenn has developed a detailed proposal for his own TV travel series, "Operation Weekend," which is available upon request.
