Currently based in Chicago, Travis spends most of his time on film projects and music videos, but he also helps clients design, develop, & distribute a variety of other digital content.
In 2005, he founded Crankstrap Productions — a multimedia & video shop. Since then, his work has been covered in Huffington Post, the Chicago Sun-Times, Punk News, Chicagoist, and various art, music, and culture blogs. His first feature-length project, An Evening of Extraordinary Circumstance, was released in June 2012 by legendary punk rock label Fat Wreck Chords and peaked at #20 on Amazon.com’s best-selling music video & concert dvds.
Increasingly interested in how mobile technology blurs traditional lines between artist & audience / producer & consumer / so on & so forth, he’s exploring the convergence of touchscreen devices, non-linear video, social media, and gamification with his second company, digiRunr, which he founded in 2012.
Before getting into entrepreneurship, he earned a degree in Philosophy and in Literature from Colgate University.
