Barney Stinson is awesome. He works for a powerful bank in New York City but somehow finds time to suit up and help the less fortunate, in particular his lovelorn and all together pathetic bro Ted Mosby--seriously, that dude's got probs. When Barney's not staging private bikini calendar shoots, test-driving tanks, or elbow-deep in another legendary activity, like riding a tiger bareback or blowing up a guitar, he can be seen on the hit CBS show How I Met Your Mother with his friends Ted, Robin, Lily, and Marshall. Matt Kuhn is a staff writer for the CBS hit show How I Met Your Mother and also produces Barney's Blog for the show's website. He lives in Los Angeles, California, which is conveniently where he works.
