It's New Orleans
Peter Ricchiuti.

Just by living in New Orleans you can naturally develop a lot of useful skills. Dodging potholes and catching Mardi Gras beads improves hand-eye coordination. Peeling crawfish increases dexterity.

One of the skills you will not have learned growing up or living here is surfing. That’s about to change, thanks to Becky Hardin’s City Surf Fitness.

In Mid-City, Jeff Lakey can set you up with a stand up paddleboard. On the Bayou. Or you can take one out on the lake. Jeff moved back to his native New Orleans from San Diego in 2010 and bought stand-up paddleboarding with him, founding NOLA Paddleboards.

Peter Ricchiuti is the finance professor you wish you had back in college! His insight and humor have twice made him the top professor at Tulane University's A.B. Freeman School of Business. After a successful career on Wall Street, Ricchiuti served for five years as Assistant State Treasurer and Chief Investment Officer for the State of Louisiana. There he skillfully managed the State's $3 billion investment portfolio.
