Travis is a retired Naval Officer, married with two children, and on move #50. His humble beginnings include 36 moves before graduating high school at 17, 12 schools, 6 states, 5 foster homes, surviving 2 murder attempts, and mother with type 1 bipolar disorder.
Although this was very rough, there was always an organization willing to keep him sheltered, clothed, and fed. Now that he’s in a position to give back, he’s made it his mission to help the helpers.
Travis hosts the top-rated Nonprofit Architect Podcast, hosted the 2021 Veteran Podcast Awards, and is the only professional podcaster with an accredited course available at the university level.
Travis holds a Bachelors in Science and received a 4.0 for his Masters in Human Relations. When Travis started the Nonprofit Architect Podcast, he had no established audience, no company structure, no vision, and no established brand name.
Starting the show while deployed to the Kingdom of Bahrain, a small island in the Persian Gulf, he took the show to #4 in the US within three months of launching. Now his show is in the top ten in seven countries in his niche and top 5% of podcasters globally. He and his show have been featured in Podcast Magazine as a top veteran-hosted show and recognized by Feedspot as a top-ranked nonprofit show.
His show has been downloaded in all 50 states and 84 countries. In 2021, Travis hosted the Inaugural Annual Veteran Podcast Awards and Miss Crossroads Oklahoma Scholarship Competition. His personality and showmanship were rewarded with repeat invitations for both events.
Travis has also spoken at several conferences including PodKnow 2021, Donor Attraction Forum, and the Global Bipolar Disorder Conference.
