About Adrian Barker:  Adrian is a content creator and entrepreneur, who founded Bark & Jack.

It all started when Adrian was left alone in the family home for the weekend and was frustrated with the quality and tone of watch content on YouTube. Wanting to create content that connected with ‘normal everyday people’, Adrian set up his iPhone, hit record and made his first video. Adrian loved the creative process of video making and dreamt of it becoming his job. So hungry to make his dream happen, Adrian handed his notice in at his day job even before Bark & Jack was making enough money to support his wife and two kids.

Three years later and after over 25 million views on YouTube, Bark & Jack is now one of the largest watch blogs in Europe and a successful watch accessories brand.
