I'm a journalist and historian, specializing in rediscovering forgotten personalities and material culture. I'm finishing a biography of the Impressionist painter Mary Rogers Williams (1857-1907) for Wesleyan U. Press. I wrote the weekly Antiques column for the NY Times (2008-2016), and now I contribute to NYT, Apollo magazine, The Magazine Antiques, Atlas Obscura, etc.
