New Orleans native Morgan Molthrop, author of JACKSON’S PLAYBOOK: 15 STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS, lived in NYC for most of his professional career. He was vice president of a Wall Street consultancy handling accounts that included the Walt Disney Company. After a year off to travel Europe, he returned to NYC to work as an editorial assistant for a division of Random House. Back on Wall Street he worked by day & went to law school at night. After graduating he taught NYU’s first class in corporate disclosure. In 2009 he returned to New Orleans, a city still reeling from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Since then, he has become an historical “color analyst,” hosting cultural events, writing, blogging, & using social media to promote New Orleans & “push” city leaders. He speaks to corporate groups about Louisiana’s unique history. He also wrote the text for a book of Tina Freeman’s photographs of local art studios & live/work spaces, Artist Spaces: New Orleans (UL Press 2014).
