The American filmmaker, television director, and reality television personality, Whitney Sudler-Smith was born in 1968 in Washington, DC to Patricia Altschul, Whitney Sudler-Smith. He was raised by his mother after she was divorced from his father when he was less than 12 years old. He remained with his mother even after her next two marriages.

His later life would be influenced greatly by her as she was a socialite and an art collector.

For his education, Sudler-Smith attended the Georgetown Day School before going on to graduate from the George Washington University. He also got an education from Oxford University and Alliance Francaise in Paris.

Mainly, Whitney Sudler-Smith got his riches from filmmaking and directing. Nevertheless, it is also possible that he got to benefit in some ways from his relationship with a former Wall Street man, Arthur Goodhart Altschul, whom his mother had married in 1996 and remained together until his death in 2002.

Still, this may not hold much weight because it was in 1996 that he left for Los Angeles to make his marks in Hollywood.
After moving, Sudler-Smith directed a small budget movie Going for Baroque and Afternoon Delight. He got interested in Indian films and produced a movie Bubba and Ike in 1998 starring Elisa Gabrielli and Jesse Borrego. He also wrote and directed another Indie movie named Torture TV featuring Danny Huston and Trevor Goddard.

Besides his career as a filmmaker, Sudler-Smith is also the director and actor of the Bravo TV show Southern Charm which looks into the lives of six young aspiring professionals of South Carolina.

Apart from his career in filmmaking, Sudler-Smith is also a trained guitarist and bon vivant. He is currently in a relationship with German celebrity Larissa Marolt.

Whitney Sudler-Smith Biography

Among some assets, the versatile entertainer is said to have expensive wristwatches including a vintage 19766 Paul Newman Daytona Rolex, which could possibly fetch hundreds of thousand dollars or even a million in an auction.

He also owns the Mikell House, a 9,480-square-foot mansion which was built as far back as 1851 and actually bought by his mother for $4.8 million. After buying the house, Patricia Altschul, gave the entire building a serious renovation before she finally moved in.

Sudler-Smith on the other has a very good house and didn’t hold back from displaying the new one he acquired in 2015 on Twitter.

However, the Bel Air house looks sweet and sleek but we are unable to ascertain its worth.

Whitney planned to open the French-Mexican eatery in his hometown of Charleston a few years back, and a lot of buzzes went into the planning. Some rumors, in fact, have it that the restaurant may never get to open again, or at least for now, for some unstated reasons.

Whitney Sudler-Smith is quite flashy and displays his wealth on social media. That is at least understandable given his relationship with his mother and the kind of woman she is.

Whitney Sudler-Smith’s estimated wealth of $2 million may rightly, or even wrongly, be assumed to come from his hard work and his mother’s generosity given that she has amassed a lot of wealth running into millions of dollars for herself. Some sources have in fact placed the woman’s wealth at approximately $20 million.
