Barry is a life-long enthusiast of technology and loves to share that excitement with others, especially students. The Vermont Manufacturing Collaboration is a wonderful fit in helping companies gain access to, and evaluate, leading-edge technology that can ignite innovation, improve a product, and create a competitive advantage. Barry’s inspiration comes from helping people turn their ideas into reality. Seeing a student imagine, draw, and then 3D-print their vision is amazing.
Barry comes to the Vermont Manufacturing Collaborative with 25+ years of experience in the manufacturing industry, including the areas of Industry 4.0, advanced manufacturing, technology innovation, and product development. Industries have spanned aero, semi-conductor, energy, adaptive technology, and education. He has launched companies, lead business operations, managed engineering departments, and been a practicing engineer over the course of his diverse career. His favorite accomplishment is having founded a company that designs adaptive products to help people overcome physical challenges with the products being produced on 3D printers using recyclable materials. Barry received his Bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering and a Master’s in Technology Entrepreneurship.
When not at the Advanced Manufacturing Center, Barry can be found snowboarding, biking, swimming, on family hikes, and loving all the outdoor activities Vermont has to offer.
