Episode 9: Mark Ostermann from Miles to Memories

Today’s Guest: Mark Ostermann

Mark Ostermann left the corporate world several years ago to be a stay at home dad and quickly found his way into the world of miles and points. Today, he works as the Managing Editor at Miles to Memories, helping thousands of people every day, as they learn how to maximize loyalty programs and travel the world for less. Always happy to grab a beer (or three) and talk about travel, Mark fits in perfectly with Derrick and Jeff here at Miles & Pints.
