Who We Are

Duane Binkley - Purchasing Agent/Lighting Coordinator

hometown: Philadelphia, PA

why I do what I do: I love the challenge of finding the single best solution to any challenge that presents itself.

last book read: "Kingdom Under Glass: A Tale of Obsession, Adventure, and One Man's Quest to Preserve the World's Great Animals"

hobbies: Obsessive Plant Collecting, Writing, Painting

quote: “That’s not a real word. There is no correct spelling for it.” “Do you want ants? Because that’s how you get ants.”

profile: Infinitely curious about the natural world and about people who have a great passion for collecting things. Working in the museum industry is a wonderful fit; to me there is nothing more interesting than another person’s (or institution’s) collection, logically organized and housed under one roof.

favorite time on the job: Working late to ensure that our installation teams have the materials they need when they need them. That’s the single most satisfying aspect of the job.

latest accomplishment: Building a time machine out of a DeLorean. You can get anything on the internet.
