Carl Brothers started Points Analytics after leaving his corporate job doing business analytics in financial services. Born in the Philippines, educated in Germany and now based in Denver, Colorado, Carl has had a head start in the frequent flyer game. He has been a member of United MileagePlus since 1993 and gained his first frequent flyer elite status with TWA in 1994. He currently has MileagePlus Premier Gold status for life and is still plotting to do the quickest 1 million miles on United. His maniacal passion for the miles and points game was ultimately sparked when he became a road warrior for a technical consulting firm after graduate school. Frequent flyer programs and other loyalty programs eased the sting of the rigors of weekly travel. During his spare time, Carl likes to plot his next travel adventure, scouring the internet for fare deals and mistake fares and maximizing award chart conversation tables. His specialty is premium award travel and once orchestrated a Star Alliance round-the-world award trip in first class aboard three A380s on three different carriers.
