Triathlon found Travis at a pivotal point in his life. After years of playing collegiate basketball a serious ankle injury ended his career. After reconstruction surgery and months of rehabilitation he knew it was time to find something to fill that competitive void. After seeing the Kona World Championships on television for the first time in 2012 he had found just that. He competed in his first sprint distance race in March 2013 and was hooked, mostly because he was so horrible at it. The next few years he would go onto taking podium finished at all of the local sprint events and completing two Ironman 70.3 distance races and an Ironman.
With the love of both sprint and long distance races, Travis is able to help the newest of new athletes that are tackeling triathlong for the first time as well as those who are seasoned in the sport and are wanting to take on the longer distance and become an IRONMAN
