Glen Dunzweiler is a filmmaker, producer, public speaker and former college professor whose documentary, yHomeless?, is available on Amazon Prime and whose book, Things I’ve Learned From The Homeless, is available on Amazon Kindle. Dunzweiler’s interest in homelessness in the U.S.narose after his own career as a live event production designer and college professor hit a snag. While furloughed in 2008 from his job at UC Riverside, he faced the very real threat of being without a home
when he could not pay his own mortgage and a call to his bank yielded some unsettling information; the
bank would not talk to him about renegotiating his payments until he stopped making them. Mortified
that he would have to make himself financially vulnerable and potentially homeless before the bank
would help him, he became curious about who becomes homeless and why. The research he
conducted and the repurposing of the funds that his bank wouldn’t accept led him to a new career as a
filmmaker. In 2015, he moved from a professorship at CSU San Bernardino to Los Angeles to focus on
the business side of entertainment. As he learned more about business, he realized college does not
prepare students to make a living. In addition to filmmaking and book authoring, Dunzweiler is a
public speaker in which he shares insights gained from working with the homeless and with
community leaders; strategies for navigating the differences between academic and business success
for students; and tips for smoother presentations for corporate audiences. Since his book launch, he has
been interviewed on radio over a dozen times and his new YouTube series Skid Row Speakers aims to
share inspiration from the homeless. Contact: Phone: (702) 767-7434 Email:
