Starting his journey in the 1980s Travis was mentored under the late John Ennis in Philadelphia, PA in his first church, Salvation Deliverance Tabernacle. Mr. Ennis was a husband, carpenter, World War II veteran, mechanic, Hammond B3 organ player, Bible teacher, and spoke Spanish as a second language. Later in his life Travis would encounter other mentors such as Dr. Bill Bennett, founder of Mentoring Men for the Master (Wilmington, DE) and the late Lieutenant Colonel Gregory O. Evans, retired Army.

Travis was also ordained as Minister and Elder in his former church Practical Living Ministry of Woodbridge, VA. Travis received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Christian Life School of Theology which was founded by Dr. Ron Cottle. Later Travis continued his studies by taking a few courses at one Dallas Theological Seminary satellite campuses where he gained additional understanding of the Bible. Travis continues to read, research, and apply principles that pertain to everyday life. He believes in a relationship with God, NOT religion, which has brought harm to many good people.
Travis is a Certified Professional Life Coach, (CPLC) and has experience in training, developing, and creating applicable courses. His skills, talents, and speaking abilities have allowed him to train in various places such as intelligence communities, the Pentagon, and with men's groups.
