Born in New Jersey and raised in Kokomo, Indiana, Glen graduated from Tri-Central Jr./Sr. High School in 2008 and from the University of Evansville in 2012 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing and a minor in Legal Studies. While attending UE, Glen served as a seasonal Resident Assistant as well as parliamentarian, communications coordinator, and later president to the Resident Students Association, a branch of student government dedicated solely to students living on campus.
As communications coordinator, Glen built delegations of students to attend state, regional, and national conferences to share campus programming ideas centered around leadership, teamwork, community service, and diversity. Glen also attended boardroom meetings during these conferences in which he represented the University of Evansville when voting on legislation affecting member schools. As president, he worked to unite individual university hall councils as well as foster a community of cooperation among other student organizations.
Since graduation, he has worked for a handful of organizations in multiple capacities, including with Ameriqual packaging making MREs for the Department of Defense, at a fast food chain, writing resumes, waiting tables, bartending, and managing a small, family-owned business.
Inspired by the messages of hope and change central to several presidential, gubernatorial, and congressional campaigns in recent years, Glen wants to make real change in Washington that will provide meaningful solutions to the everyday issues facing his district, his state, and his country as a whole.
Glen has called Evansville home since move-in day at UE more than eight years ago. He currently lives on the east side with his fiancée, Alyssa, and two cats, Mufasa and Emelia.
