About Tristan

I most recently produced bestselling author Brené Brown’s two shows – Unlocking Us and Dare to Lead for Spotify – where I also worked on Emma Chamberlain’s Anything Goes.  I’ve worked with journalists from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone, and Spin.  I’ve also produced episodes of the enormously popular Stuff You Should Know podcast.

I also compose music.  My ambient music’s been featured in The Fader, Hypemachine, and Clash UK.
