Brandon was born and raised in California and really didn’t travel much growing up, even outside of his own state. While attending college, he was constantly looking to find the cheapest fares to any destination abroad, and quickly learned about the motto- “Chase the fare, not the destination”.

Luckily, his first international flight was to Costa Rica (under $300 roundtrip) where that “Pura Vida” lifestyle (and Imperials) hit him hard, and he knew he had to see more.

Of course, Brandon signed up for all sorts of frequent flyer programs without any real plan, except for the fact he wanted free flights!

Then a few years down the road he began pursuing credit cards, sometimes in masses, to earn all sorts of miles and points to elevate his travel style and enable him to travel more for so much less.

So far, Brandon’s favorite flight has been on the First Class Apartments on Etihad’s A380 from Abu Dhabi to New York. He can’t choose a favorite country, but he does have a “Top 5” which can change depending on the day: Costa Rica, Peru, Brazil, Sri Lanka and Iraqi Kurdistan.

Brandon graduated from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey with an M.A. in International Policy Studies, specializing in Conflict Resolution and currently lives in Washington D.C.
