Michiko Playlists

You can really get to know someone by listening to music they love. We’ve compiled a playlist full of artists who practice here. Its -well- amazing! We love hearing you in the halls, and online. You can listen to it here!

The following playlists feature our employees. You can get to know them better by the funny questions we’ve asked and by listening to their playlists.


Meet our social media manager! Emma is from California (have you noticed her accent?) and loves working at Michiko. She says she can, “feel the history” when she walks down the halls.

Let’s get to know her a little better:

Would you rather fight a horse sized duck or 100 duck sized horses? I’m a pacifist.

No, it is coming at you. You have no choice. There’s no running. I would gently tame the horse size duck and ride it!

What’s your favorite season? This is a hard one…I think because fall is next I’m like FALL!! But I truly feel most alive in Spring.

What’s a core memory of yours? When I first moved to New York, my partner and I were sick in bed with COVID, up late because we couldn’t sleep. I told him, “I think I could recite all of Pirates of the Caribbean from memory.” He dared me to do it, so I did. This is a memory in a memory!

Meet Colin! Colin works behind the desk, has created a fun game of gear BINGO, and studies music at The New School.

If money was no object, what would you do all day? Play sax and collect Lego!

What’s your favorite movie?  Alien (1979) and the subsequent sequel but nothing compares to the terror and build up of one of the first blockbuster horror movies.

Do you like or dislike surprises? Why or why not? No, because I probably have a game plan already but I’ll figure it out.

Meet Nico, another behind-the-desk-guy. Nico studies upright bass performance at Juilliard. He lives in Brooklyn and loves taking care of his basil plant.

Let’s get to know him a little better:

Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without? Espresso or a strong tea such as Matcha or Yerba Mate.

How many pairs of shoes do you own? 10. 

What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever eaten? When I was little, I swallowed a piece of metal. I haven’t told anyone this until you asked.

Meet Jeff. You guessed it, he works behind the desk! He and his wife got married at St. Mary the Virgin Church right next door 26 years ago. They moved to Nashville then Wichita Kansa to raise their family, and moved back to New York last Winter.

Let’s get to know him a little better:

What is the best gift you have been given? My two boys! 

How would your friends describe you? Friendly but quiet. I’m introverted but when you get to know me i’m more outgoing. I’m relaxed and easy going most of the time. 

What are your favorite movies? Good Fella’s, and You Can’t Take it With You. My wife and I started watching all the Best Pictures from the Oscars. We’re just now on Forrest Gump- we made it to the 90’s but we started in 1938.
