He also holds a MS degree in Marine Science from the College of William and Mary, Virginia Institute of Marine Science, where he was awarded the Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship. He served on Capitol Hill for 7 years under his mentor, the former Senator John Breaux, as professional staff on the Subcommittee on Fisheries and Wildlife Conservation and the Environment in the U.S. House of Representatives, and in the U.S. Senate staffing the Senator’s Maritime Subcommittee and his fisheries and trade legislative agendas.  Glenn’s unusual career also includes stints as an alligator farmer, bluefin tuna dealer, and COO of an international trading company with operations in Europe, Asia, and North America.

Glenn has been appointed to many scientific and management advisory panels to the federal government and was appointed by President Clinton to serve for nine years as U.S. Commissioner to the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT).
