Born in a Jewish family
Casey Neistat born as Casey Owen Neistat on March 25, 1981, in Gales Ferry a small town in Connecticut. He was raised by a Jewish family by father Barry Neistat and mother Amy Neistat. Interestingly, his mother was watching horror movies at the time of Casey’s birth. His dad was a restaurant supplies salesman who sold forks knives and dishwasher.
As per Casey himself, his Youtube career was wonderfully unsupervised. He grew up alongside three siblings Dean Neistat, sister Jordan Neistat and a brother Van Neistat with whom he later worked together in his struggling days. Casey grew up in the poor middle-class part of Connecticut.
Currently, 36-year-old Casey attended Grammar schools and later joined Ledyard high school. By the time he was in the senior year, his parents divorced for which he blames his mother. Following the separation of his parents, he started living with his mother whom he didn’t like since she was always dominating. At one time she told him to do as she says or get out of the house. Eventually, he left the house on Tuesday night at 9 pm when he was 15 years of age.
Early fatherhood and Struggle
Upon leaving his family he moved to a friend’s house for a while before moving to his girlfriend’s apartment. His girlfriend lived with her friend but after some months they got into a fight due to which his girlfriend’s friend left the house. So Casey and his girlfriend got a Honda and left to Virginia when his younger brother was studying in college.
During his stay at Virginia, his girlfriend got pregnant due to which he moved back to his hometown and dropped out of high school. Casey and his girlfriend lived in a friend’s basement and started working in a restaurant as a dishwasher for $8 an hour.
At the age of 17, he moved to Brooklyn and stayed at brother’s apartment who had recently brought an iMac. The same year his son was born and sadly he broke with his girlfriend. It was the hardest time for Casey but since he had Imac he started shooting his son’s video or fun.
Nevertheless, he moved to Newyork in June 2001 at 20 years of age and met a guy named Tom Sacks who was his brother’s friend. He worked as an assistant to Tom who was a movie maker and later started working with his brother Van making birthday videos. In 2003 he got his first iPod but since the battery died in a year and a half he decided to make a video about defects of electronics. It was his first video which Casey uploaded on video which eventually turned out a big hit.
Additionally, his life changed after he met a guy named Tom Scott who ran a group of local tv channels and hired Casey and his brother to make videos. He made eight movies at a time which he later sold to HBO and decided to shift his focus to Youtube. Eventually, after that, there was no stopping him since he started getting views and became a popular figure on Youtube.
