It was his parents' clever strategy to channel their energetic trio's boundless enthusiasm into creativity. This early exposure to artistic expression sowed the seeds of a passion that would later become a remarkable career. After several years spent working various jobs, Travis pursued his dream by enrolling in the Hussian School of Art to obtain a degree in advertising. It was during this time that fate led him to paint. Encouraged by his instructor’s advice, "Do whatever it takes. Paint every day. You are a painter," Travis embarked on a journey of relentless dedication to his craft.

Additionally, he has donated his art to charity auctions in New York City on two separate occasions.
