Glenn joined Cline Bettridge Bernstein’s team in 2011 and was promoted to an Associate’s role in 2014.
Glenn’s interest in lighting began over a decade ago with design work in theatre: He was especially drawn to the way light can play a transformative role in the perception of space. He received his BA (2006) in Theatrical Lighting Design from Lewis & Clark College. He then continued his studies from 2008 to 2011 in the Master of Architecture and architectural lighting MFA programs at Parsons The New School for Design.
In his project work, he is most compelled by the intersection of lighting and architecture. Particular focus areas are the ways in which lighting shapes our experience of space, and the role of lighting in a sustainable future. He feels that CBBLD offers him the perfect environment in which to work on a range of projects and to explore the interaction between design, thought, application, and sustainability.
Glenn’s theatrical background offers insight into light as a narrative device, leading to the creation and design of spaces which are designed with contextual sensitivity. Additionally, his liberal arts background and education in architecture have instilled a strong collaborative sense, enhancing his design work through developing holistic solutions for the built environment.
