Paul Mercuri - Founder and Managing Director
After a quick, back-of-a-napkin calculation, Paul thinks he has helped Aussie travellers save over $75 million dollars over the last decade. His goal at Traveldream is to top that, and help people save over $1 billion! A lofty goal indeed, but he believes it possible. Paul has plenty of experience, and has previously held positions at Kogan, Travelzoo, Ourdeal.com.au, News Corp and Fairfax. A European destination specialist, his favourite place in the world is Positano, on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. When he's not negotiating travel deals, he is on adventures with his wife and kids, and his most recent overseas trip was the west coast of France. He is also into Muay Thai and Taekwondo.

Her previous travel industry experience has provided her with all the tools to help customers plan their dream trip, right down to the smallest detail.
Her next adventure: Vietnam.

Growing up between Perth, Australia and Bali, Indonesia Jo has a serious hunger for travel, diverse culture, traditions and food! Jo has visited over 50 countries across Europe, UK, USA, South America, South East Asia and Africa. Her aim is to eat her way through every country as she is a huge foodie. With over 25 years in the Sales and Management industry, Jo prides herself on helping each customer book the vacation of their dreams. The next adventure Jo is planning to take is Turkey to visit the “fairy chimneys” of Cappadocia and fly a hot air balloon over them at sunrise.

Jenna Rank - Digital Marketing Manager
Melbourne born and bred, Jenna is lucky enough to live in the beautiful Yarra Valley. During uni, she lived in the UK and to date has visited over 50 countries across Europe, the USA, central America, South East Asia and the Pacific (don't ask her which one is her favourite, she can't choose). Next up: the Kimberley, and a Europe river cruise!
Jenna has worked in travel for many years, across a variety of roles, before coming over to the Traveldream team. When she's not busy playing with pretty travel pictures (aka working), she is hiking, visiting wineries or - no surprises here - planning her next trip.
Angie Wallace - Content Creator
Originally native to Queensland, Angie has managed to blend her love of tourism and content creation together as the newest addition to the Traveldream team, and is already very busy creating some amazing new content and resources for our customers to enjoy.
She spent many years frolicking around the turquoise waters of The Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef, but her proudest achievement was taking a twelve month solo road trip from London to Sarajevo in a $500 Volkswagen - all at the tender age of 25 (before she knew any better). While other highlights include going off the grid in Borneo and exploring Vietnam by motorcycle, like many others, Angie is itching to return to beautiful Europe in the not so distant future.
