Respected DJ, sound designer and location mixer, Glenn grew up with music in his blood, playing guitar. A deep passion for sound and music has seen him undertake intense periods of study into the esoteric nature of sound. His first foray into film sound began in the early 2000’s with a digital media project, working with cellist Michael Conolan, composer Richard Mills and Australian comedy personalities John Clarke and Magda Szubanski. Glenn has since worked on numerous screen projects including short and feature films, documentaries and advertising, many of which have screened and won awards locally and internationally.  Always fine-tuning his skills to record the best dialogue and foley sound, Glenn is the consummate professional and all-round nice guy. Photo Credit: Faces By Raphael
