The Team

Paul Mercuri - Founder and Managing Director

After a quick back of a napkin calculation, Paul thinks he has helped Australian travellers save more than $75 million over the past decade. His goal at Traveldream is to help them save over $1 billion. A lofty goal indeed but he thinks it is possible. Paul has previously held positions at Kogan, Travelzoo, Ourdeal.com.au, News Corp and Fairfax. When he is not negotiating travel deals he is going on adventures with his wife and daughter. He is into Muay Thai and Taekwondo. He is a European destination specialist. His favourite place in the world is Positano, Italy. And his most recent holiday was to Malta.

 

Angela Zuniga - Head of Product

Ange has always loved daydreaming and travel. As a student her spare time was spent working to save up money and then travelling. This cycle lead to work as a travel agent in California, a tour leader in Japan and 20 years of customer service experience in a bank, an online startup and Australian tour operators including intrepid Travel. Along the way she met her husband in Costa Rica and they travel together with their two kids. Sometimes internationally and sometimes on Aussie adventures. Her favourite experiences have been walking on the Great Wall of China, tandem hang gliding down to the beach in Rio de Janeiro and patting a Tasmanian devil - their fur is so soft! Without luggage limits she would travel with plenty of dark chocolate, her bike, surfboard and yoga mat. She is currently daydreaming about Western and Northern Australia.

 

Juli Skermer - Head of Cruise

With an immense passion for cruising and customer service, Juli has worked in the travel industry for almost 7 years! She grew up in the open border between Brazil and Paraguay, moved to Australia over a decade ago and fell in love. When she isn't busy baking delicious treats, Juli spends her free time chasing her adorable twin boys. She is always dreaming about the next destination on her bucket-list and currently, she's thinking...a relaxing ocean cruise or an escape to the South Pacific! 

 

 

Shauna Callaghan - Online Travel Specialist 

Shauna is always chasing that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Originally from Ireland she loves the ‘craic agus ceoil’. Enjoys hospitality, in particular her time cocktail bartending, offering her the chance to show off her creative side. After school, she went on to study tourism which led her to work abroad and learn a new language, from here she has always been passionate about tourism and now helping travellers get their perfect trip away. From a nation where you can’t escape travel bug, she is always dreaming of where her next trip will be. After touching down in the land down under, she has got to experience the beauties of the Northern Territory and what the west and east coast has to offer. There is still plenty left on that to-do list, but for now, she’s dreaming of Asia. 

 

Migle Barauskaite - Head of Marketing

Migle (but everyone calls her Migs) essentially grew up on trans-Atlantic flights. Her mum says she's "like a leaf in the wind" but she likes to think of it more like a crippling case of wanderlust. She used her passion of travelling and knack for marketing to see the world working for NGOs, agencies, and startups. The US, UK, Estonia, and Albania are just a few expat experiences. When she landed Down Under she knew that she'd found a place to put down roots...for now. Melbourne is the world's most liveable city for the 7th year running, after all. Migs enjoys cocktail bartending on the weekends (#hospoforlife) and eating Uber Eats on the couch. On that note, she (and her wallet) are accepting applications for some cooking lessons. At the next available chance, she's keen to visit New Zealand and run away from any 30+ degree day in the city. 

 

Rhea Cartoon 

Rhea Agrawal - Product & Marketing Manager

Do you hear someone humming? That’s probably Rhea. An absolute music-lover born & raised in Mumbai, Rhea touched down in Melbourne four years ago to learn all about marketing strategy (yes, she could probably sell you a pen). With a unique addition of a Psychology degree, Rhea is absolutely enthralled by the galaxies that exist at the pinpoint of a human mind. While she has some iconic experiences ticked off her ‘To Do’ list including driving by the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest caldera in Tanzania and learning Muay Thai in Thailand - Rhea is currently dreaming about where her next travel adventure will take her....Japan or South Korea? A part-time soccer player and full-time foodie, Rhea will always be up for exploring new brunch spots or jamming out at karaoke.

 

 

Andrea Nguyen - Customer Service & Marketing Specialist

Born in Vietnam, Andrea was brought up in Vietnam - in the cradle of heroic history and traditional culture. Andrea's real name is Hoai Anh, but friends call her 'Onion' in their different languages. As a girl with a creative mindset and a caring personality, she loves deep conversations with a range of perspectives and always strives to give customers a great experience on their journey. Taking a break after solo adventures, her goal in the next few years is to travel to Europe and Japan with her parents before they retire! 

 

 

 

 

Alexandre Dubois - Creative Intern

Alexandre Dubois may as well be called Jack, because his portfolio of work is certainly one of all trades. Having graduated from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Visual Arts, Alex made the move to Melbourne in 2010 to pursue his dreams of starting a print magazine called FAINT, aimed to support artists and designers from all over the world. Working as a photographer himself specialising in high-end fashion and beauty, Alex launched his own independent creative agency by the same name at the start of 2019, with a strong focus on music photography and community-driven initiatives. When he is not behind the camera or InDesign-ing the perfect Traveldream, he makes music under the name HEARTATTRACKS and daydreams about fried chicken!

 

  

 Yim Kitiphong - Head of Sales (Asia)

Yim (or you could try using his full Thai name if you have few minutes) was born & raised in the city of Angels. Yeah! Bangkok. A city guy who doesn’t eat veggies but has an interest in meditation for peace of mind. Although he’s travelled to over 30 countries, a stamp from any of the countries in the Americas is still missing from his passport. It might be due to his stingy nature. Yim & his wife would always search for the best deals (whether they exist or not) around the world when planning each trip. He thinks it’s time to use his 15 years' experience in travel to reveal those unbelievable deals to others that love discovering the world without feeling guilty. His next mission isn't necessarily travelling somewhere, but to create a Facebook or Instagram account so he doesn't keep all of his travel snaps to himself (seriously?!).
