Glenn lives on a small farm in rural Sonoma County with his wife Anne Marie, 2 dogs, 2 farm kittens, a gentle steer, 6 sheep, cute lambs, an annoyingly adorable goat, and too many chickens. He and his wife enjoy ultralight wilderness backpacking, travel, hiking, yoga, working on their farm, and enjoying really good homemade food and cocktails.
He is passionately into speed - achieved through windsurfing, mountain biking, motorcycling, and driving a very old Datsun or too fast Porsche. To slow down, he takes out his old diesel tractor or pets the gentle steer or sheep. They celebrate Spring with baby lambs, piglets, chicks, with potatoes, garlic, greens and onions in the garden. Life is good.
