Miles to Memories Podcast - Meet the Hosts

Shawn Coomer

MtM Founder/Editor-in-Chief

Following an 18 month family around the world trip in 2007, Shawn Coomer began carefully studying bank & travel loyalty programs. He earns and redeems over a million miles/points per year across multiple airline, hotel, bank and other loyalty programs and holds elite status with over a dozen of them.

Shawn's love of travel is possibly only overshadowed by his love for Disney. To this day Shawn continues to travel around the world with his family, stopping at every Disney park along the way.

Mark Ostermann

MtM Managing Editor

Mark Ostermann is a father, husband & miles/points fanatic. He left the corporate world after starting a family in order to be a stay at home dad. He is constantly looking at ways to save money on travel while staying within budget.

Recently Mark has learned the joy of solo parent travel including taking his kids to Orlando just to visit McDonald's. When he isn’t caring for his family or taking a weekend trip, Mark is working towards his goal of visiting every MLB ballpark.

Joe Cheung

As The Joe Flies

Joe caught his love of travel at an early age, but started really diving into miles and points when he and his wife were expecting their first child. He’s been writing about using miles and points to reduce the cost of family travel on his blog asthejoeflies ever since. He loves traveling all around the world with his wife and three children, with a special place in his heart for travel to Asia.

When he’s not writing, you can find Joe podcasting about miles and points on his podcast the Saverocity Observation Deck or chatting about his second love, Disney World, on his Disney planning podcast Disney Deciphered.
