About Your Host

Barry Galperin is a creative and development executive. After graduating top of his class with a degree in screenwriting, Barry's first job in the industry came in the form of an assistant to TV Writer Brigitte Liebowitz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine). Quickly transitioning into reading, Barry discovered a knack for story analysis and began working for several high profile feature film directors including Matt Spicer (Ingrid Goes West), James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now & The End of the Tour), Ry Russo-Young (Before I Fall & The Sun is Also a Star), Alex Lehmann (Paddleton & Blue Jay), Kyle Patrick Alvarez (The Stanford Prison Experiment) and actress Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi). His abilities in writing, development, story analysis, and packaging landed him a Creative Executive position at Florida Hill Entertainment, most known for their South by Southwest smash hit: Come as You Are.
