“I had the pleasure of working with Barry for three and a half years, as we led our departments in partnership to deliver record-breaking results for key projects, year after year. His leadership, both individually and as the head of a team, was always solid and steady. He is one of the best writers I’ve worked with and is capable of writing from multiple points-of-view and in many voices to ensure his audience receives the message that is intended. Barry also truly understands and values the need to blend traditional and modern-age marketing strategies. Overall, he is the strongest marketing and communications executive I’ve had the pleasure to work alongside.”
— Darrell L. Tucci, Chief Development Officer, Desert AIDS Project
“As a Board member of Desert AIDS Project since 2010, I had the opportunity to work with Barry on a number of occasions — helping to create and execute marketing and development campaigns, as well as design and participate in a number of strategic planning sessions. I find his enthusiasm for his work infectious and his professional demeanor unparalleled. Perhaps most interesting is his ability to not only lead a team successfully but to persevere under oftentimes enormous pressure, get the job done on time and within budget, and do it all with a smile on his face.”
— Bruce J. Purdy, President at Purdy International Consulting

“Barry is one of the most skilled and effective public relations/marketing experts I’ve ever worked with. At Desert AIDS Project, we collaborated on the agency newsletter to clients on a weekly basis, as well as for several events and various published articles. He is an excellent writer and editor as well. A thoroughly dedicated professional.”
— Steve Bolerjack, Writer/Editor
“Aside from his fluency in delivering critical messages to multiple audiences, Barry is a passionate, articulate, and enthusiastic communicator, especially when given the opportunity to advocate on behalf of something truly meaningful. On top of that, he is just a deeply good person. Any organization lucky enough to add Barry to their team will reap rewards beyond measure.”
