Meet Kirin

A model of financial mismanagement in his youth, Kirin came into Miles & Points with a desire to sharpen his monetary savvy. He’s driven by turning less into more, to travel like a prince on the budget of a pauper.

As a Prince of Travel writer, Kirin provides a value-minded approach and enjoys exploring alternative viewpoints of how to earn and burn. Never one to shy away from irreverent banter or literary references, he prefers to keep it light and engage with Miles & Points topics in a conversational manner.

Kirin intends for his travels to take him to the most obscure corners of the earth, from North Korea to Madagascar and beyond – all on a budget, of course. While he prefers business class and elite status (if the price is right), he’s no stranger to low-cost carriers either.

Kirin’s passion for the Miles & Points community is unsurpassed. He’s always eager to connect with other like-minded individuals and push the boundaries together. He has hosted several meetups in his home city of Edmonton, and he’ll happily grab a drink if you cross paths on his frequent travels across Canada or around the world.
