Barry Berman, Executive Director
After spending 26 years in Los Angeles, California, Barry now lives in Rhinebeck, New York. He made his first excursion to South Africa in January of 2008. At that time, he knew little of the country, but has since made Cape Town his home away from home.
Barry co-founded ICT in 2009 with Spencer Moyana. Thanks to the support of many South Africans and Americans, the school was quickly off and running.
A professional screenwriter and self-taught cook, Barry is active in every facet of the school’s operations, from teaching classes, to student counseling, to fundraising and administration. His specialty in the classroom is in teaching Knife & Life Skills.
He is devoted to ICT’s continued success and finds it among the most exhilarating and gratifying endeavors of his life.
