His formal career started in education where he taught for 2 years as a Teach For America Corps Member in North Carolina. Following this experience, Travis became the HR Manager for a rapidly growing network of non profit charter schools in Colorado. Since then, he has led implementation projects as an independent consultant for Denver Public Schools and learned a lot about individualized learning in the classroom. When he's not geeking out about the newest uses of technology, he can usually be found with a cup of coffee in his hand hanging out with his wife, two kids, and two dogs in Boulder, Colorado, where every day feels like a vacation watching the sun set and rise (and more often than not, the snow fall!) over the gorgeous Rocky Mountains.
