Derrick Biney-Amissah

Director of IT & Facilities

As Director of Facilities, Derrick Biney-Amissah coordinates technology deployment and ensures that the Foundation's various facilities are able to support its programs, functions and mission. He studied philosophy and fine art at Georgetown University and received an MFA in painting from Pratt Institute. Working in academic administration and on various capital projects for more than a decade at Pratt Institute's Media Arts Department and New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, he developed a strong interest in organizational design, applied technology, and the power of creative collaborations to affect institutions and society. He has served on the Church Council at the Riverside Church in New York, where he has been a longtime member, and is a mentor with the Moriah Institute. While it amuses him to write about himself in the third person, he would like it to be known that, among many other things, he enjoys cycling, soccer, art, design and his colleagues.
