Barry grew up in the Bahamas and fell in love with the water when he was five years old. He has been swimming and snorkeling ever since. He began spearfishing at 10 years old and enjoyed the thrill of hunting fish. He still loves to go diving and hunting for a meal every chance he gets and often welcomes visiting guests to come along on the journey. 

His first PFI class was in 2008, and he became an Assistant Instructor in 2016. The following year, Barry gained his Instructor certification. The emphasis on safety is what attracted him to PFI and he centers his teaching around it.  

Today he is the owner and operator of Paradise Cove Beach Resort Ltd., on the island of Grand Bahama, The Bahamas. This offers him a great opportunity--right off the beach--to teach freediving and run spearfishing tours. He also enjoys teaching snorkeling and water safety classes.
