Born in the rolling foothills of North Carolina, Travis's love of riding began early. His favorite childhood pastime involved wheelies on ATVs and chopping bicycles with the neighborhood kids. During his time in the military, ChopCult and playing guitars helped ease the tedium of deployment. The love of motorcycles spread among his fellow Marines as they discussed the latest ChopCult feature. Today Travis lives deep in the woods with his family and dogs. Riding motorcycles brings peace and maintains a connection with his fellow Veterans. His photography has grown from a deep appreciation of the stories that grainy photos from the '80s and '90s tell.
