Our Founder

Crystal Warner

Following “20 seconds of insane courage,” Crystal Warner decided to parlay her passion for travel into a business curating tailor made luxury vacations for clients. Some might say it’s an unlikely career choice: As a 2004 USC graduate who returned in 2007 to earn an MBA, she walked away from a seven-year career at a top global investment management firm and founded Dream Maker Travel. Her boutique agency, which specializes in highly unique, customized trips with personalized concierge services, took off immediately, with a large clientele from China – the world’s fastest-growing tourism market. Today, she spends much of her time in Shanghai, visiting her sister and building rapport with clientele who want elite vacations in some of the world’s most sought after destinations. Relying on her first-hand knowledge garnered from many years of exploring the globe, her ultimate goal is to give all of her clients exceptional experiences that will forever change how they see the world.
