Glen is the Director of Accessibility at Feminuity, focusing on incorporating digital accessibility into designs. Glen has his Certified Professional in Web Accessibility (CPWA) certification from the International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP). He's also very active on various accessibility forums and often gives presentations at accessibility conferences.
Glen's background is technical, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science (Magna Cum Laude) from North Carolina State University in Raleigh. He worked as a software engineer for many years before applying those skills to remediate accessibility issues. But in addition to technical experience, Glen has worked with designers for over two decades, so he understands the aesthetic side of accessibility. He loves to share his knowledge by teaching accessibility classes. Attendees range from designers, developers, testers, and product managers to sales, marketing, education, and legal.
Glen lives in beautiful northern Utah and has lived there since 2017 but is originally from North Carolina. He loves to hike the mountains that are only a 15-minute walk from his house. In the winter, he has to don snowshoes or cross-country skis to do those same hikes. He also enjoys biking, and in 2009 participated in a 450 mile "Mountains to the Coast" ride across North Carolina, from Blowing Rock to Surf City. Gardening and cooking are how he nourishes his outdoor activities. From a competitive side, he's always up for a challenging match of racquetball, squash, or tennis.
Glen's family is somewhat of a United Nations mix. He has two daughters from China, a daughter-in-law from Mexico, and a foster son (who now lives with a permanent family) from Thailand. All his biological sons were born in North Carolina.
On the side, he was learning Mandarin and used to communicate on a Kindergarten level (read, write, speak, and listen) but has not practiced his skills in a while.
