Biography

Welcome to my website. I am the author of Personal Stereo, a cultural history of the Walkman, and The G Ring: How the IUD Escaped the Nazis, a Kindle Single due out in February 2020. My writing has appeared in The New York TimesSlateThe Nation, The Believer, The Cut, the Times Literary Supplement, and The Guardian, among other publications.

In my reporting and essays, I often explore the relationships between people, the natural world, and technology. I also love to write about books (including emerging subgenres). And I enjoy pondering the joyspossibilitiesdilemmas, and annoyances of 21st-century life.

I live in Southern California with my family. Oh, and it’s pronounced TOO-hoose DOO-brow.
