Meet Ron Barry

VP of Business Development

I have a dedicated ice freezer. Quality ice matters.

As a founder, I've worn all sorts of hats over the years. Now I handle business development. So my tiny team is all about meeting new people and bringing in new business. I'm delighted to say that my fellow meltmedians are awesome, so it's pretty easy to tell our story. In particular, my work-wife is our Chief Tinkerer and he's always doing something crazy on melt's behalf. Check out his profile to see what he's up to.

Originally, I’m from the Midwest but I lived in Japan between college and grad school. That gave me the confidence to explore different cultures and, more importantly, food. Consequently I have a real passion for cooking. When I’m not in the kitchen, I’m probably looking up fares to eat my way across Northern California.

When I have time to read, I'm a fan of Haruki Murakami’s work but Jack London got ahold of me at a very young age (well, his writing did, he didn't kidnap me or anything). But most of all I love being with my wonderful daughter, Natasha. She’s beautiful, smart, and makes me laugh every single day.

Baba booey! Baba booey!
