Travel Hacker & Personal Finance Geek

Daniel Stanford is a graphic designer who has been obsessed with bargain hunting, saving, and investing ever since he used double coupons and a roll of nickels to buy his first set of Hot Wheels. In 2009, he was upgraded for free to a business-class seat on a flight from Stockholm to Chicago. After several mimosas, a reindeer filet mignon, and a long nap in his lie-flat bed, he decided he'd never again suffer the agony of a coach seat on an overnight flight. Since then, he's accumulated tens of thousands of dollars in free airfare from credit card bonuses.

Daniel holds and MFA in Interactive Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design. He enjoys helping people save money, invest wisely, and create beautiful presentations, websites, and apps.
