Barry was born in suburban New Jersey, and spent his adolescence in West Palm Beach, Florida. After earning his B.A. in English from Harvard University, he attended the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in New York, studying with the legendary Sanford Meisner, and pursued his career as an actor in small productions and regional tours. He moved to San Diego to earn his M.F.A. at the University of San Diego. In 1995, Barry married and moved to Atlanta, where he has worked with many of the city's and state's premiere cultural institutions, including the Alliance Theatre, the High Museum of Art, the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Emory Univerisity, the Children's Museum, the Atlanta Zoo, and the Atlanta History Center, Barry is the proud father of two sons, Tendal and Royce, who are performers and activists in their own right.
Barry has traveled throughout the United States, and to more than fifty countries on four continents. A lover of languages, he is conversant in Spanish and French, speaks bits of German, Hebrew, Greek and Russian, and can count to ten in Turkish.
