Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one's potential.

Hey y'all:

I'm Adam Glinsky, a sales expert here at Guitar Center.  I came to Los Angeles by way of Boston, MA and Indiana, PA.  I grew up in a small town and always had a love of music.  With my passion growing into recording and mixing, I achieved my B.A. in Sound Design and Digital Sound Post Production at Emerson College.  After I graduated college, I traveled to Los Angeles to pursue my musical career.   From my first guitar to my DJ rig, Guitar Center has always been my go-to store for my musical equipment.  I hope to give all of my customers the respect and courtesy that I always received when I shopped here growing up.

Other than music and guitars, many other hobbies.  Martial Arts plays a large roll in my life.  I train at Gracie Barra Hollywood in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling, and kickboxing.  I have also trained in San Da and Muay Thai kickboxing back in Boston.  Along with martial arts training I like to meditate, practice yoga, and go hiking.  Being physically fit and mentally healthy is just as important to me as making awesome music.  I do enjoy studying various academic subjects.  Philosophy, psychology, physics and mathmatics have always intruigued me. I regularly take online classes to keep my mind growing and expanding.  Learning anything new always makes me feel great, especially when you get to study them in depth.  My education and upbringing has always led me to seek a deeper understanding of everything.  I truly stand by my quote by Bruce Lee.  Life is a long, long, long journey through time, space, and maturity and we all must develop ourselves on a daily basis.  Discipline and focus are very important to me and my lifestyle. So if you share similar interests I'd be happy to talk about them as well.  
 
I hope you had fun learning a little about me.  If you'd like to contact me please feel free to do so!
