David Prior

Co-Founder and CEO

Called “One of New York’s most connected editor-storytellers” by the Financial Times, David built his reputation as an authority on food, travel and style as a Contributing Editor at Condé Nast Traveler, Vogue Living, and as a frequent contributor to T, WSJ Magazine, and Bon Appétit. Raised in Brisbane, Australia, he began his career working with iconic American restaurateur, author and activist Alice Waters at Chez Panisse. Condé Nast Traveler has described David as having “an unrivaled black book of contacts,” which he brings to overseeing the planning of PRIOR’s experiences and itineraries.
