Travis earned his degree in business administration with a real estate concentration from Point Loma Nazarene University.

As an excellent musician, Travis developed an after-school music program in 2006 for high school students in his local community. He gathered local musicians with the idea of providing singing and guitar lessons to hundreds of local junior high and high school students. The program took off from its inception and is still providing an opportunity for high school students to get involved in music and participate in a band. Travis also continues to volunteer at Junior Achievement teaching business economics to local elementary schools. He currently sits on the board at Volunteers of America, past board member of the Vista Hill Foundation, and an occasional guest speaker at Point Loma Nazarene University.
