Travis grew up in Small Town, Missouri, USA and always had a passion for music. At the age of 19 he packed up and moved to Orlando, FL to attend Full Sail University and study Recording Arts. After achieving his Bachelors Degree he moved to Music City to chase his dream of making great records. A year into interning for various studios, including Loud Studios headed up by James Stroud, he realized my true talent lie in working with people. He landed an internship at Sony Tree Studios where he ran mail and did every odd job under the sun. After a cyclical rendition of ‘musical chairs’ and persistent requests of Troy Tomlinson - he landed a spot on the Sony/ATV Music Publishing creative team as Media Library Coordinator. Four years into growing his roots at Sony/ATV, he received an offer from Tim Hunze to step into the Creative Director role at Parallel Entertainment where he currently reside managing their revered roster of songwriters and their catalogs.
