Julian learned the ins and outs of travel loyalty programs while flying more than 200,000 miles a year as a TV producer and director for World Wrestling Entertainment (and yes, of course it's all real). He has appeared as a travel expert on multiple national media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, NBC News, Forbes, Travel + Leisure and numerous radio stations. Before coming to The Points Guy, Julian wrote about travel loyalty programs for U.S. News and World Report, Travel Codex and Frequent Miler. A graduate of the Newhouse School at Syracuse University, Julian's work as a director has screened at many prestigious festivals throughout the world, including the New York Film Festival at Lincoln Center, Cinequest in San Jose, and the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival presented by TBS. His feature film debut, The Brooklyn Heist, won Honorable Mention for the Christopher Wetzel award for Independent Film Comedy given by the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago.
