About this site
The Briefcase is an autobiographical, narrative podcast. Part music project, part memoir, part recommendations. The world is a confusing place. I’ll do my best to sort it out for you and me. One episode at a time.
Portrait by Tim Van Damme
I make stuff. This site is a place for me to do just that.
Currently, I work at Typekit and they’re the coolest group of people I’ve ever worked with. I do my best to make life a bit easier for our customers. I live and work in Brooklyn, NY.
Thanks so much for listening.
My current machine is a 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K Display (2017), 32 gigs of RAM, and 512GB of flash storage. This is the best computer I’ve ever owned.
I use an iPad Pro 10.5. This thing is insane. I’ve found it to be a fantastic tool for research, writing, and making music.
The device that never leaves my side is an iPhone 6s.
The software I use to record, arrange and make all things audio.
Used for it’s session view and excellent midi routing.
A great thunderbolt audio interface with 4 mic preamps.
A great, broadcast quality mic. This is for everything voiceover.
A great condenser mic. I just this for all things singing and musical.
I use a bunch of different things to make music. Many of them are software based. This is some of my favorite hardware.
This is an amazing four-voice analog synth and incredible four-track sequencer.
8 voice digital drum computer & sampler. If you’re curious, watch this first look.
6-Voice Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer. It does something surprising every time I turn it on.
A smallish midi controller that has some really neat features.
