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 X.
Used for recording, arranging, and mixing audio. Final production is done here.
Used for it’s clip launcher, excellent midi routing, and the modulators. Ideas start and take shape here.
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 has changed how I work more than any other tool. My favorite way to start from scratch and compose.
I recently got into modular synths. That’s a can of worms I’ll never be able to close.
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.
