Travis is a young, ambitious driver born in Miami, FL and raised on the Treasure Coast. He began racing go karts with his father at the age of 14. He soon found himself competing in endurance karting races and training as far south as Homestead, FL as far north as Lime Rock CT, and as far west as Temecula, CA. It was very early on that his talent and drive was recognized and he quickly began training with Skip Barber Racing Schools. At his first Regional Formula Dodge race with the organization, he qualified on the pole and won his first race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. This set the tone for this young driver known for his passion, excellence, and coachability behind the wheel of any racing machine.
Travis moved out west to Boulder, CO for school and in 2009 found himself in the company of Mike Pettiford of GO 4 IT Racing Schools, where he received his SCCA National Competition license. His 2010 season in Showroom Stock B was highlighted by3 race victories, 3 lap records and culminated in him being named the Rocky Mountain Divisional Champion.
In 2011, Travis began assisting GO4IT Racing Schools with instruction for corporate events. He also raced in Spec M3 with Bimmerhaus out of Broomfield, CO winning 2 races again from pole.
2012 marked Travis’ entry into the ranks of Pro drivers, competing in the SCCA Pirelli World Challenge series under the guidance and expertise of drivers such as Robb Holland and Gary Sheehan. His team, 3ZERO3 Motorsports built and prepared his #30 Volkswagen Jetta GLI for 5 races at the end of the season with his teammate, Fred Emich of Emich Volkswagen. Travis claimed a 2nd place finish from his very first professional race at Mid-Ohio Raceway, and a 3rd place finish from Sonoma Raceway and in a partial season of contention worked his way into 9th place standing overall in the Championship.
