Introducing... Shannelle Galati

Hey! My name's Shannelle

I'm your new friendly neighbourhood Happiness Team Lead here in Hawthorn.
You'll be able to find me at the Happiness Team desk, roaming around the kitchen or loitering around bookstores on my lunch breaks.
I'm super excited to meet you all and discuss what I can do to help foster you in this incredible environment.
Community collabs, connection and chatting about why Nickelback is the greatest band alive are just some of my favourite topics to discuss. I look forward to meeting you all.

Introducing... Joana Oliveira

Hi, I’m Joana

You may know me from such things as Happiness Team Lead in Richmond or the sangria extraordinaire from Cocktails & Cubes.
As an avid traveller, professional swimmer for 15 years and past-volunteer of Lisbon Zoo and Aquarium, I’ve got some stories and I’m always down for a chat!
CreativeCubes.Co is made up of some interesting, incredible and inspiring people and it’s one of the main reasons I love working here. My goal is to create a place where people walk in and feels welcome, respected and part of something amazing…. kind of like ‘Cheers’!

Introducing... Shai Skinner

Hi! I'm Shai

I’m part of the Happiness Team in Richmond!
It’s safe to say that I’ve well and truly caught the travel bug. I’ve spent 2.5 years living in London and I take every opportunity to travel to a new destination! So far, my top 3 places to travel are Morocco, Japan and Croatia!
When I’m not jet setting, I love a good reality tv sesh - you name it, I love it.
I love the community at Cubes and look forward to adding to it with my happy and positive energy!

Introducing... Dean Lakatos

Hey there, I’m Dean

I work within the Happiness Team in Hawthorn.
Originally hailing from Sydney, I moved to Melbourne 4 months ago.
Although I’m now residing in Melbourne, my heart and soul remain in Sydney i.e the Cronulla Sharks!
I love a good podcast so I’m always open to new suggestions, especially if they’re relating to scifi and astronomy. I’m hoping to add an already awesome community my fun, positive and happy vibes!
