Travis has a dual bachelor of science degree from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. The Religious Studies degree focused on religious terrorism and violence, religious fundamentalisms, Western religions, and radical fringe religious movements. The Music degree required competency in music theory, music history, functional piano, and mastery of a primary instrument. Travis's classical training in was on the bass trombone.
Travis previously wrote articles for LiberalAmerica.org, focusing mostly on Wisconsin politics and animal issues. His articles consistently pushed readers to challenge their own preconceptions and dig below the surface for the more profound implications of political motives. Though no longer writing for this publication, he remains a voice for both Wisconsin progressives and pit bull advocates.
Travis has authored multiple blogs over the years. The first was a politics blog titled Democrat by Default, which has since been changed to Greater Fool Society. He has an upcoming project of a food and music blog called Rock the Crockpot. His current main blog is called Millicent Bloggings, named for his pit bull Millicent. The site is a combination of pit bull advocacy, a picture dump for pictures of his three dogs, and a local outreach to work within the community to make dog ownership safer for both dogs and owners.
