Our Backstory

As avid world travelers, Unbound was created to fill a growing need for finding and booking experiential group trips. Founded by Jess Primavera and Michael Dere, we’ve assembled a team of people as passionate about travel as we are to create a product we would want to use ourselves.

Our Founding Members

Jess Primavera

CEO & Co-Founder

I’ve visited 50+ countries, and I’m always captivated when learning about other cultures. I’m excited to be working with a super-talented team in building Unbound, an application that speaks to my passion for travel as well as leverages the skills I’ve acquired throughout my career.

Michael Dere

CTO Co-Founder

I have traveled to various countries and ultimately enjoyed it, but at the same time I understand the pain points when it comes to traveling. Looking back, I wished that during my travels I had exactly what we envisioned for Unbound in my hands. There are so much potential for Unbound to transform travel and I can’t wait to launch Unbound services.
