Class of 2012

Hunter Holcombe is a San Francisco-based writer and producer. Having worked as editor for both a technology news publication and a travel magazine, he’s been able to write about his twin passions, but he has also covered politics, global cuisine, business travel, the meetings industry, art and music.

His work has appeared in such outlets as Bloomberg, The Huffington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Sacramento Bee, Virtuoso Life, One+, Oryx, Meetings Meda, Bright Business Media and others.

On assignment, he’s been lucky enough to travel to places like Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Bangkok, Bogota, Cartagena, Montreal, Boston, Acapulco and Zihuatanejo, as well as extensively throughout the American West.

After “doing the San Francisco startup thing” and working as a magazine editor, he moved to Buenos Aires, where he covered South America for American magazines, hacked away at a novel, consumed copious amounts of Malbec, and worked on video projects with local producers.

Currently earning his Masters at Berkeley, he also enjoys testing his residual primate skills on overhanging rock faces, as well as earning the unique perspective provided by mountain summits (while they still have snow).
