He is a 21st century creative!

Barry is a creative designer and a very talented photographer and a nice guy to know. He is a 21st century creative - he knows that unless he moves the crowd to emotion through beautiful design and photography nobody will talk about, share, follow, recommend or like it. Anything less than this in the age of noise will not cut it. That's why he's in my iPhone contacts.
