Barry Penland is a graduate of the Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA and begun his professional career at Nextel Communications in 1998 where he helped develop Nextel’s wireless antenna network and taught elder team members to surf the text-based wireless web of the day. Realizing that content was king (and more fun) he returned to the Vancouver Film School in British Columbia to focus on multimedia production. After a 3-year stint honing his skills in corporate communications, his friend and former co-worker Alex Simmons convinced him to join Current in 2007 where he has produced and edited for the Music team ever since.
Born and raised in Seattle, Barry has filled the shoes of summer camp counselor, corporate NIMBY point-person, and Mr. Chuck E. Cheese (himself). He lives in Koreatown and enjoys photography, VJ’ing and time-shifting with his TIVO.
