About Glenn

Persistent--even obsessive--in my goal of creating a practical "backyard flyer". Now have a successful, patented design. Unfortunately, increasing family commitments, combined with a serious health problem presents an overwhelming challenge. For the past year or so, and for the immediate future, I have been unable to move the Lift-JET project forward. I need a co-founder capable of operating an effective crowdfunding campaign to finance the creation of a full-scale prototype. Compensation: 25% equity.
