I found Barney to be intelligent, inquisitive, articulate, collaborative and willing to take on any challenge.  He was adept in utilizing a wide variety of design & presentation programs to represent our ideas.  He also demonstrated good skill in presenting our work, exhibiting an intuitive knack for both anticipating client questions and interpreting their input comments.

Barney, I am not aware of all the blood, sweat (but hopefully no tears) that you contributed to making our master plan so successful but I suspect it was a lot.  So, from all of us down here in Tallahassee, a big thank you for your contributions.

Mark Bertolami, Director Facilities Planning, FSU (client)

He is a talented designer and someone who will truly flourish in architecture.  As a person he is a joy to be with and I have observed his relationship with peer colleagues where his presence has fully enriched the team as a whole.

Barney has the distinct ability to work on both big picture, large scale master plans as well as conceptual design for individual building projects.  His ability to clearly communicate through visualizations, graphics, and in presentation set him apart from his peers.
