"Michelle is a top notch professional with a real creative flair. She is missed here in NYC"

Tim Hatfield - Producer and Owner Cowboy Technical Services - NYC

"This is a panegyric to the lovely and talented Michelle Barry.  We first worked together at Marcus Studios in London in 1997, and I took an instant liking to her.  She's top on  the gear, low key. and self effacing.  She will never make a client nervous, and I always enjoy being around female energy.  Studio having a regrettable tendency to be smelly boys clubs.  I hire her every chance I get "
