Biography

Welcome! I am the author of Personal Stereo, a cultural history of the Walkman. My writing has appeared in The New York TimesSlateThe NationThe Cut, the Times Literary Supplement, and The Guardian, among other publications. 

I’ve written long-form stories on a misunderstood postpartum mood disorder, on pro-nuclear climate activists, and on Margaret Sanger’s forgotten rival for leadership of the early birth control movement. I also write book reviews, and occasionally do Q&As (here’s an old favorite). 

My work has received support from the Robert B. Silvers Foundation and the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability.  I live in Southern California with my family. Oh, and it’s pronounced TOO-hoose DOO-brow.
