David Hochman works with words


I'm a writer, editor, author, storyteller for brands and bigwigs, and chief podder of a tribe called Upod.

My bylines appear in The New York Times, Forbes, GQ, Food + Wine and many other outlets. Famous people, food, travel, culture, style, business, science, chocolate, skiing, immersive family experiments -- those are my specialties. 

Upod Academy is a semi-secret school I started for freelance superheroes.

I graduated from Vassar College and Columbia Journalism School and live in Los Angeles with my wife, Ruth, a chocolatier, and our son, Sebastian, who wears bow ties.

Here's my TEDx talk about pushing through fear to get things done.
