Thanks to Greensock for helping me find my way on Twitter. I thought I'd share my solution for any other people out there that are searching for a configuration of Require + Backbone through external modules & shim's like I was: 


  paths: {
    'jquery': 'libs/jquery-2.1.1',
    'underscore': 'libs/underscore',
    'backbone': 'libs/backbone',
    'TweenLite': 'libs/greensock/TweenLite',
    'CSSPlugin': 'libs/greensock/plugins/CSSPlugin',
    'EasePack': 'libs/greensock/easing/EasePack'

  shim: {
    'underscore': {
      exports: '_'
    'backbone': {
      deps: [
      exports: 'Backbone'
    'TweenLite': {
      exports: 'TweenLite'

], function(Backbone, App, TweenLite) {
  'use strict';

Hi Jonah,


Welcome to the GreenSock forums. Really appreciate you posting your solution here as I'm sure others will find it useful.


Happy Tweening!

Thanks Jonah! How exactly did you implement it into your app - meaning what file did you put it in, etc? I'm using 'yo' to scaffold my backbone.js app so just wondering the best place to add this config file (p.s. I'm a newb to backbone.js too)
