Motorcars was founded by Alex Katz. Alex is passionate about cars -
some might even say he is obsessed. From his earliest days, his memories

time in the driver’s seat of his family’s cars when they were parked as
he handled every knob and dial, or observing the distinguishing features
of every car he saw, Alex was focused on some aspect of automobiles.
Instead of reading books like other children, he read only car magazines
– studying every detail of every model and his favorite show was (and
still is) Motorweek. While most kids sat at home collecting baseball
cards, Alex collected license plates. Alex has been training for his
career for his entire life.

from Miami, Florida, Alex fell in love with the city of New Orleans
like so many other Tulanians and cannot imagine living anywhere else. He
lives near Tulane with his wife Erin Luft Katz, a local dentist (both a
Tulane and LSU alum), their son Bennett, their daughter Sloane, and
their Italian Greyhound Mia.

His favorite part of the job is sharing his car knowledge and providing

on home renovation projects and spending time with his pup, a nine-year
old German Shepherd named Mona.
