Crayonz (Barry) #
Barry has a BA in Philosophy, an MFA in Creative Writing, and spent nearly eight years in the US Army Infantry, deploying to both Iraq and Afghanistan, and leaving as a captain. He has lived in five countries and greatly enjoys immersing himself in new cultures, especially the food.
During his time in the military, Barry held several leadership positions, most notably as a Platoon Leader in Iraq and a COO position in eastern Afghanistan, which saw him in charge of crisis management and asset allocation for a unit of 3,000 people. These positions taught him a great deal about the importance of time management, respect (for both superiors and subordinates), compassion, attention to detail, and personal responsibility.
He is a co-founder of Legends of Cypher and generally spends his creative time writing and thinking about writing. He wants to help people understand what a story is, the importance of immersion, and how the two are related. As with any good writer, he has two novels 'in progress' in addition to his Legends of Cypher work.
