Mohammed Suleman

Director of Resources

Meet Mo, the Director of Resources. We asked him a few questions to find out more about him and here are his responses…

  1. Many of the people that Joseph Wright painted chose to be depicted with an object that tells us something about them as a person. What object would you choose and why?
    King of Rome Pigeon as I like to take a bird’s eye view of the horizon ahead.
  2. If you could be any animal from the Nature Gallery, which would you be and why?
    Sun Bear because it looks like it’s doing some moves very similar to ones I would do on a dance floor.
  3. What makes you happy?
    Being with family, watching star wars (except episode 2-3), playing oasis on my guitar and making money for the museum!
  4. What do you love to do in your spare time? (Aside from working at the museum, obviously)
    Anything but gardening!
