Jess Farley

Senior Contributor and Compliance Team Lead

 

Jess is a long-time member of the AwardWallet family, joining the team in 2016. Hailing from New Zealand, Jess studied frequent flyer programs in-depth to reduce costs while traveling full-time with his wife and young son.

 

Interested in adventure and experience-based travel, he primarily uses points and miles to transport his wife and kids between family in New Zealand, his home in Australia, and whatever adventure he can dream up in Asia. His favorite travel experiences include traveling through the highlands of Tibet with his wife and son, and an extended winter stay in a cabin in the mountains of Nagano, Japan.

 

When he’s not banging pen and paper together for AwardWallet, you’ll find Jess nerding out on Forex charts, running trails, competing in Ironman, cooking up a storm, doing yoga, or traveling with his young family. Jess is currently based in the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.
