Georgia Southwestern College, Americus, Georgia. History/English major-- Following in the footsteps of venerated designers Edward Jones & Jimmy Means, ( two of Mathis' favorite Georgia Classicists), Barry decided to pursue a career in architectural design. Influenced by the work of Jones and Means in Albany and Atlanta, he dedicated himself to "learn by doing". While his career track has been perhaps outside the mainstream, he has never regretted the opportunities his choice of career and professional experience have afforded him, and he considers himself fortunate indeed to be able to earn a living by doing what he loves.
Barry is married to Bettina Smith Mathis, formerly of Albany. They have two children, Taylor, and Carolyn. They reside in East Cobb, a suburb of Atlanta and attend Johnson Ferry Baptist Church. Barry is an avid fly-fisherman, and enjoys travel, golf, and coaching his children in church-league sports.
