Meet The Tilted Team


Ty Yturralde

Founder and Californian native Ty "Taco" Yturralde moved to Australia in 2008 after graduating from the University of Arizona in 2007. Throughout college, Ty dreamed of taking baja style Mexican food 'down unda' – so much so, he even wrote his thesis on the topic! He followed his dream and the waves to Australia, and in 2014 Ty founded a successful fast casual restaurant called California Tacos (www.californiatacos.com.au). Since then, he and his "best mate" Colin Kugler teamed up with Schoolies - Australia's #1 Spring Break Company - to create the ultimate Spring Break Party … DOWN UNDER!

In his free time, Ty enjoys a casual kangaroo boxing match, drinkin' stubbies with his mates, and almost NEVER puts a shrimp on the barbie.

Matt Lloyd

Matt is the CEO of schoolies.com, Australia’s number 1 Spring Break company. He has specialized in travel for high school and college students for over 25 years.

While working as a young school teacher in Sydney fresh out of college, Matt realised the students were more interested in talking about the holidays they were planning together than the lessons he was teaching, so he decided on a career change.

Over 600,000 students have enjoyed the packages schoolies.com offers and the numbers grow each year. He can’t wait to show American students all that Australia has to offer on this once in a lifetime adventure of Spring Break in Australia.
