Casey Neistat Net Worth: YouTuber Profile
Casey Neistat was born on March 25, 1981, in Gales Ferry, New York where he spent his early childhood. At 17, he dropped out of school and moved to New York City, ostensibly to chase his dreams.
Soon after moving home, his girlfriend delivered his first child, Owen, and Casey was forced to work some odd jobs, including as a bike messenger, to support his nestling family.
He also started making short movies around this time, but it wasn’t until 2003, when he was 22, that Casey Neistat burst into the public eye courtesy of his video ‘iPod’s Dirty Secret’.
The short clip, which made fun of the extremely short lifespan of iPod batteries and further denigrated Apple for not offering replacements, was covered by the biggest news organizations in the US at the time, including CBS News and Washington Post.
This effectively gave him nationwide traction, and a ready audience for his subsequent projects, starting with the Science Experiments series.
In regards to his personal life, Casey Neistat is married to South African jewelry designer, Candice Pool, with whom they have two little daughters, Francine and Georgie. Being a New York native himself, Casey lived in New York for the better part of his adult life, but he, later on, moved to Los Angeles.
Once in a while, He rallies his fan base around a good cause such as the Charity Water Campaign where he and his fans pooled together over $20,000 to help provide piped water to people in developing countries. He also made waves early on in his YouTube career (2013), when he donated $25,000 – which he had received from a major film studio – to victims of a typhoon in the Philippines.
Casey Neistat Early Days
As mentioned earlier, Neistat started doing odd jobs right after high school until he was 20 (in 2001) where he started making videos about his daily life, together with his brother Van. They at one point partnered with renowned artist Tom Sachs for a series of videos about his sculptures and art pieces.
However, Casey Neistat didn’t hit it big yet until 2003, where his newfound notoriety from iPod’s Dirty Secret gave him the opportunity to take his video content to the next level.
Soon after, the two brothers started shooting a series of random scientific experiments, which they titled Science Experiments.
The series gained popularity after being featured in the 26th Sao Paulo Biennial event in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The climax of Casey’s early career was when Science Experiments was featured in the 59th Minute Program by Creative Time.

Casey’s career in the big stage formally kicked off in July 2008, when he and his brother inked the deal with HBO for the Neistat Brothers’ reality series. The series was written and directed by the two brothers, working in collaboration with the likes of Tom Scott and Mason Daugherty.
In February 2010, he uploaded a video on what he thought were the acceptable circumstances for trains to use the emergency brake cord. The video was quite controversial, which only gained him more fans.
Over the years, he has uploaded lots of viral, and deeply controversial content on YouTube, including one where he was campaigning for Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 polls while using denigrating language for supporters of Donald Trump.
In 2017 he posted a video addressing PewDiePie‘s inappropriate anti-Semitic jokes.
In addition to his regular vlogs, Neistat has also worked in a number of advertising campaigns, most notably the Nike Make It Count promo. He has also done a few public speaking gigs, including a TEDx Talk, and a public lecture at the Nantucket Project.
