I'm a NOLA newcomer - been here 5 years - and can't wait until I can call myself a native, 50 years or so from now. I love it here, came down to teach high school and have now combined my passions for technology and education by running an education technology startup. This city is all about people and the relationships you build with them, and I love to help people get plugged into the local scene, especially the vibrant entrepreneurial community. And of course, there's the food. Always more than happy to give a restaurant recommendation (or five).
