Barry is a musician and educator with a BEd (Hons) Music degree and a career in Scottish Education for over 15 years. In recent years, areas of responsibility have changed to focus on pupil health and wellbeing as a Senior Leader, and he hopes to link together this experience with his passion for raising awareness in sexual health and blood borne virus education and HIV in the present day, as a member of the HIV Board. Barry is Chair of Our Positive Voice (Grampian) and part of the steering group in leading Aberdeen to work towards become a Fast Track City. A committed peer mentor and CHIVA key worker, Barry finds it very rewarding to volunteer within the HIV sector and looks forward to helping to shape the future of the work of HIV Scotland.
