Skulls Staff Spotlight: Behind the Bones with Eric
What is your primary role at Skulls Unlimited or SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology?
I refurbish, repair, and finish all human material. I process and finish all cat-size and smaller inventory items, including [material] for BoneBox. I also work and manage the bug room.
What is the coolest thing about your job?
I really like repairing old human skulls and skeletons. It's an equal split between anatomical knowledge and artistic ability.
Do you have a bone collection? If so, name your favorite or rarest specimen.
I have owned many skulls throughout the years, but my favorite skull related things are my dozens of Anthropology related casts.
What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?
Studying music theory.
What is your favorite specimen in the museum(s) or your favorite thing we sell in the Gift Shop?
I have always liked primates, so I really like the great apes. Chimps, gorillas, orangutans, and humans.
What is your favorite part of each workday?
Working with the dermestid beetles.
Can you play any instruments?
Yes, I play guitar, banjo, ukelele, and some dulcimer.
