About Barry: Barry feels blessed to work with FPP as part of Career 3.0.
Barry began Career 1.0 as a hospitality operations leader in theme restaurants and theme parks for nearly ten years. While with Universal Orlando Resort, he parlayed his leadership acumen into a role in Human Resources/Learning and Development, and found his passion for developing talent and leadership.
Barry spent the next fifteen years in Career 2.0 as a learning leader in a variety of industries, including real estate development, agribusiness, supply chain logistics, financial services and non-profit healthcare. During this time, he honed his principles of leadership while designing and facilitating hundreds of strategic learning initiatives and consulting with countless leaders at all levels.
In 2014, Barry boldly stepped away from corporate life to author a leadership book on volunteer engagement. This shift to Career 3.0 led to multiple non-profit service opportunities locally and across the United States, including a two-year volunteer role with FPP.
The relationships built during that time led to the continuation of serving those who serve others with FPP.

Leads: Strategic and Tactical Technology Development Initiatives
Ryan developed the foundational skills necessary to support the FPP Coalition through IT and philanthropic work at East River High School. He expanded on these qualifications through engagement in web development work aligned with Orange County Public School Systems.

He has continued to work to support the Coalition’s technical needs while expanding into other roles in directing, producing, and editing content both published on Spondulics and used in FPP’s major initiatives.
