I am a former reporter for TIME in Hong Kong and former closet geek at Gizmodo and Lifehacker. My work has also appeared in Yahoo!, MSN, Mashable, Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler and Quartz to name a few places. I've also traveled over half a million miles in the last few years and been on every continent except Antarctica. My family still thinks I'm on vacation.
I once had a friend who couldn’t understand why he should care about frequent flyer programs until I once pointed out he was missing out on a free domestic flight for the two international flights he was already taking every year. The next day, he signed up.
