Travis has also been hired to testify as an expert witness in legal matters involving the purchase, sale or lease of commercial property.

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 his time coaching the Point Loma Nazarene Surf Team, which was the #1 College Surf team in the United States for four consecutive years (2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017) and the #1 California College Surf team in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 over colleges such as Cal Poly, UCSD, SDSU, USD, UCLA, Pepperdine and USC. He is a frequent guest speaker at Point Loma Nazarene University and in 2011, Travis was elected by SD Metro magazine as one of the top “40 Under 40” young business leaders who are helping shape the local business community. He also owns and manages multi-family investment portfolios in Ocean Beach, CA.

On the weekends, Travis spends his time serving at his local church, as well as surfing, playing guitar, performing magic and spending time with his wife and three kids.
