“I learned everything from him, including what good music is – 90s grunge – and what to do and not do to keep the parents happy,” Barrett says with a smile. “Over the past 10 years, my wife has been my biggest influence. She’s a great inspiration and has the perfect combination of tenacity, smarts, and kindness. She and my son fill me with positive energy.”
Growing up in Arkansas also inspired his love for the great outdoors.
“I spent a lot of time outside – camping, hunting, fishing, being in Boy Scouts,” he recalls. “It’s a perfect state for that, and a great place to grow up. I still love outdoor activities, and one day I hope to run in the New York City Marathon and take some long-distance hikes like the Pacific Crest Trail.”
We’re grateful that Barrett brings his uniquely engaging and powerful talents to keep things moving – literally – at New Fortress Energy every day.
