Barry is a father, husband, sibling and son – not in that order but each as needed. His family gave him incredible opportunities and continues to fuel his drive to explore and expand his world view. He stays busy currently focusing on running, triathlons, sailing, surfing, golfing and skiing, but that order has shifted, expanded and contracted over the years. Barry spends a lot of time in thought and faith, reading when he can and writing when he must.
