When I’m not working on building my news tracking startup, Grapple.News, I serve as Executive Editor at Point Me To The Plane. I also freelance as a points and miles travel advisor with Juicy Miles and am a contributing travel writer at The Points Guy, Travel + Leisure and Point Me To The Plane, and others. My love for travel started when I was barely a toddler; we would fly regularly out of PDX to visit my grandparents, aunts and uncles in Texas, and I earned my very first Southwest Rapid Rewards points in 1996, at age 6. My favorite all-time trips include Yangon, Myanmar, Chiang Mai, Thailand, and Iguazu Falls on the Argentina-Brazil border. I love sharing my experiences navigating the complex world of airline policies and programs, in hope that my knowledge can help others enjoy smoother travels.
