Glen Dunzweiler is a filmmaker, producer, writer and public speaker. He started his work with homelessness in 2010 when making his documentary ‘yHomeless?’. After years of seeing the public bang their heads up against the same homeless issues, he was driven to write this primer.
‘Things I’ve Learned From The Homeless’ looks to explain the world that housed individuals are often frustrated by.
The goal is to flip viewpoints on homelessness, to create new dialogues, and to inspire action.
Glen Dunzweiler invites you to get into it with him, so we can all start to figure this out.

Glen Dunzweiler is a filmmaker/ producer/ and public speaker. He is the creator of the documentary “yHomeless?” on Amazon Prime and the upcoming book “Things I’ve learned From The Homeless”. His first career was as a production designer and professor for Universities (UNLV, UCR, and CSUSB). In 2008, work furloughs caused him to call his bank to try to renegotiate his house payment. When his bank informed him that they would not talk until he stopped paying, he realized that they were asking him to make himself financially vulnerable and potentially homeless. This led him to research homelessness in this country and thrust him into filmmaking. In 2015, because he couldn’t figure out how to get his documentary seen by the public at large, he moved to LA to focus on the business side of entertainment. After finding distribution for yHomeless? and while developing his next film (a biopic about an ex-student), his early background as a performer (a drummer and actor) eventually pulled him back on stage to share the insights he has gained while 1. working with the homeless, 2. navigating the differences between academic and business success, and 3. producing visceral entertainment and presentations.
