Casey Mintzer – Founder

I’m Casey Mintzer, a graduate economist and marketing specialist living in the heart of New Orleans. I’ve always had a passion for the people behind the numbers. After graduating from Tulane University, I worked for a large firm conducting demographic research for Louisiana engineering projects. From there, I moved on to marketing management in a more intimate setting before starting New Orleans Perspectives.

With festivals every weekend, there is never a dull moment in New Orleans! You can catch me a Voodoofest, French Quarter Fest, and of course Mardi Gras parades, my favorite being Chewbacchus.  I also enjoy participating in and attending local theater. Somehow, miraculously, I’ve been crossfitting for over 4 years…. which comes in handy when its time to change that water jug.
