Strict eyesight requirements deterred Barry from becoming an astronaut, but fascination with space shuttles inspired him to study mechanical engineering. His obsession with exploring technical functions and combining parts to make a whole product led him to Nordson, where he found the incredible opportunity to learn the ins and outs of diverse products and equipment.
For Barry, each day differs based on the project. Typically, he heads to the Developer Lab at 6 AM to partner up on projects with engineers. Other days, he lends a hand in the Applications Lab to fulfill customer equipment requests. Barry also serves as a mentor in Nordson's cross-departmental community events and tours with schools.
