Introduce Yourself: Barry Korn
What's Your Story?
Hi, my name is Barry Korn. When I was two years old my father died. After moving from Cleveland to Detroit to live for a while with my grandmother, my mom moved us to Los Angeles. Mom remarried a few years later and we moved from the city to the valley. I attended Van Nuys High School and went on to UCLA, transferring to Berkeley.
