Glen joined the faculty of Eastern Wyoming College in January 2019 to begin the new Gunsmithing program.
He graduated high school in western Wisconsin in 1977 and then went to college at Trinidad State Junior College (TSJC) where he earned a degree in Gunsmithing in 1981. Glen then went to work for Don and Norma Allen, who were the founders of Dakota Arms in Sturgis, SD.
In 1983, Glen became a charter member of the American Custom Gunmakers Guild. In 1988, he left Dakota Arms to start his own company where he made custom rifles for individual customers along with manufacturing custom gun stocks for multiple national companies which were Weatherby, Browning, Beretta, Dakota, Galazan, and Conneticut Shotgun. He managed B Searcy Ent. where he manufactured double rifles.
Glen began his teaching career in 2013 at TSJC where he was a stock making instructor.
He admires the work and careers of many in this field and enjoys teaching to pass on the art of gunmaking.
Glen and his wife are happy to be in Wyoming, closer to their children and grandchildren in western South Dakota.
