Episode 6 Shownotes – Barry Lynch
Moving to another country is always a challenge, but our guest this week Barry Lynch’s journey was amplified by the added stakes of securing dual citizenships for his children. Richard and Barry talk about confronting unique complications, acquiring a deeper understanding of different cultures, and encountering the many highs and lows of expatriate living. Barry is Senior Vice President of Field Services at PTC, but his career has now transformed into an interesting amalgamation of professional accomplishments and social media stardom as an esteemed theme park reviewer.
Relocating from the UK to the US in 2005 was the beginning of a captivating excursion for Barry. It was not without hurdles, but it represents the joy and achievement of a well-planned journey filled with resilience, adaptation, and eventual success. Dive into their story as we unravel the essence of the Lynch family’s “expat” living, marked by personal professional victories, familial growth, and a passionate love for theme parks.
