About the Author:

Travis was born in Austin Texas in 1955. He has been a lifelong adventurer and entrepreneur. In 1961 his family moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As he grew up, he became fascinated with building boats. By 18, he had traveled by boat throughout the waterways of southern Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico, then moved back to Texas.

He became especially interested in how the pyramids were built in his fascination with history, astronomy, and physics. These subjects would remain of great interest to him to this day.

He worked as a realtor while in college, then in 1976 started a woodworking factory in Houston, which he sold in 1981. With a partner, his next venture was a small shipyard. By 1983 he was inspired to go into the financial services industry, and soon thereafter moved to the birthplace of the personal computer: Silicon Valley California.

In the mid 1980's, he published his book "Down at the Bank." This was part of a recruiting and sales training system that literally made his company take off. For years, as an entertaining public speaker, he traveled nationwide conducting seminars to recruit and train new agents and brokers. A large sales force was built over the years, and he won numerous sales contests and conventions to travel widely.

He owned a cabin cruiser and was an avid scuba diver. He has snow skied the Rockies and Sierras, and sailed in the Caribbean, and the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans. As a windsurfer, he has sailed in Hawaii, and various spots in California near Santa Cruz, and even under the Golden Gate Bridge.

Travis has been a successful home builder and day trader. In June of 2000 he moved with his wife, Sharon, his son, Brandon, his two dogs and cat from San Jose back to his hometown of Austin, Texas and he lived there until his death in 2007.
