He moved to NYC to be with them and met the love of his live Yolanda, an East Village singer songwriter and performance artist. Together they went to seminary and were ordained Interfaith ministers In 2011 & 2012 respectively. Glen went on the acquire a Integral Mentor Certification and a BS in Healthcare Management. He lives in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn with Yolanda, a very fat cat, Gracey and tons of houseplants.
