"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 "
