With Gallaudet mission statement in place, Barry is eager to offer video solutions to university departments. He provides video productions of presentation series, conferences, workshops, banquets/luncheons, sporting games, and many other campus events. As the department producer and director, his other duties include consulting and coordinating with clients, production planning, providing many different technical services, such as: filming, editing, archiving, and releasing projects for online distribution. He attends many different fairs and workshops locally.
Although he recently celebrated his 30th year with the department, he began as a student worker in 1980. Early in his career, he amassed video production skills through Deaf Mosaic (DM) productions, in the studio and out on the field. He won the local chapter Emmy Award in the category of the segment producer - Fighting for the Right to Drive - in 1990. He also won Telly Award for Gallaudet Recruitment '94 as the producer. Other than DM, he was involved in team production of monthly presidential report/vlog, teleconferences, DPN, Deaf Way events, recruitments, Deaflympics, sporting games, and children shows.
After DM ended, he trained and employed up to 12 student workers while maintaining the student video equipment loan in additional to other video production duties. He has been active on over 200 presentation series, conferences, bowls, celebrations, and commencements. As an avid Bison fan, he can be found at sporting games. He makes some trips to away games as far as Vermont. While on these trips, he often visits battlefields and historical sites.
He was raised in DFW metroplex and still makes the annual trip to there. He is looking forward to the Baltic Sea cruise next year. He enjoys various multicultural celebrations on campus and off campus (locally), visits galleries and museums, Civil War reenactment, and tours his ancestry lands. He enjoys Washington Nationals games at stadium. He appreciates and tours the "new" Washington neighborhood development, particularly on H St. and 6th St.
