My name is Glenn Harmon, and I am currently residing in the United States of America, specifically Los Angeles, California. When time and finances permit, I plan on moving out to a destination yet to be determined. At the time of this writing, I am 21 years old.
I have an established IQ of 136 and I can pick up many skills rapidly, with little introduction. My native language is English but I am fluent in Spanish, French, and German. I am a graduate of North Torrance High School, and am currently enrolled full-time at El Camino Community College to pursue an Associate's Degree in the field of Administration of Justice, with a minor in Language Studies. Academia is a good thing, but I believe life should not be spent buried in textbooks.
My hobbies include reading, writing, gaming, working on my 1996 Chrysler Cirrus LX sedan, and owning and shooting firearms of all flavors. I recently renewed my membership in the National Rifle Association of America for another five years, and intend to become a Life Member very soon. I believe firearms are invaluable tools that have many varied uses, and are to be understood and respected, rather than the commonly-held misnomer of menacing machines of malice that are made only for wholesale slaughter and serve no tangible purpose to the common man. Being stereotyped as the quintessential American gun nut is also very insulting and degrading, in my personal opinion, perhaps akin to a verbal slap across the face. However, I am very eager to offer advice and information to any person who wishes to learn more about any general firearms subject, so don't hesitate to send me a correspondence if you have any gun questions.
My first real experience with the Grand Theft Auto series of games started with Grand Theft Auto 2, and turned into a full appreciation with Grand Theft Auto III onwards. I was amazed at the gameplay of the series, the concept of a virtual sandbox to just amble about and create mayhem with no repercussion is, in a word, cathartic. The amount of pedestrians, graphic detail, vehicles, weaponry, and the well-scripted story all kept me fascinated enough to purchase every game onwards to the current iteration, Grand Theft Auto IV. However, I have not played Liberty City Stories or Vice City Stories and cannot speak for them.
Among the GTA series, I also enjoy such games as the Gran Turismo series, the Max Payne series, the Half-Life series and all iterations thereof, Armed Assault, The Battlefield 1942 series, including Battlefield: Vietnam and Battlefield 2, the Soldier of Fortune series, and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six series, most notably Raven Shield, Rainbow Six: Vegas, and Rainbow Six: Vegas 2.
I first stumbled upon the Grand Theft Wiki while searching for references to the Sabre GT, my all-time favorite vehicle in the series. I started by uploading some screenshots to add to the page, and the rest, as the saying goes, is history. Hopefully I can be a regular contributor and offer some useful information for any other fans of the series.

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." -Thomas Jefferson
"... I simply cannot stand by and watch a right guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States come under attack from those who either can't understand it, don't like the sound of it, or find themselves too philosophically squeamish to see why it remains the first among equals: Because it is the right we turn to when all else fails. That's why the Second Amendment is America's first freedom. ..." -Charlton Heston
"Order without liberty and liberty without order are equally destructive." -Theodore Roosevelt
"To prejudge other men's notions before we have looked into them is not to show their darkness but to put out our own eyes." -John Locke
