Staff Spotlight: Grant P.H. Barber

Name: Grant P.H. Barber

Position: Development Manager

How long have you worked at Town Hall?

I’ve been here just over two years and have held a few different roles. As Development Manager, I steward all our awesome members.

What attracted you to working at Town Hall?

The commitment to accessibility and the breadth of awesome programming.

What book could you read over and over again?

2001: A Space Odyssey. Arthur C Clarke’s surreal depictions of space and time blow me away every single read-through.

Who would you most like to see presented at Town Hall?

Michael Pollan. He’s such an educated and articulate food writer—his thoughtful critiques of our relationship with food would be perfect for Seattle’s gastronomes.

What do you do when you aren’t working?

I love to take advantage of our gorgeous city and natural spaces, so you’ll often find me running, biking, and traveling. I also take my culinary hobbies seriously. I bake a lot of bread, brew my own beers, and I’ve taught workshops on traditional Nordic brewing methods!
