Prior to joining Hughes Marino, Travis was vice president at Irving Hughes. He focused a majority of his time in all major suburban markets where he assisted his tenant clients in all phases of negotiations and real estate brokerage. Travis earned his degree in business administration with a real estate concentration from Point Loma Nazarene University.

In 2006, Travis developed an after-school music program for high school students in his local community. He gathered local musicians with the idea of providing singing and guitar lessons to hundreds of local junior high and high school students. The program took off from its inception and is still providing an opportunity for high school students to get involved in music and participate in a band. Travis also continues to volunteer at Junior Achievement teaching business economics to local elementary schools. He is a past board member of the Vista Hill Foundation and an occasional guest speaker at Point Loma Nazarene University. In 2011, Travis was elected by SD Metro magazine as one of the top “40 under 40″ young business leaders who are helping shape the local business community. Travis has also been a featured guest on UT San Diego’s radio spot with Brian Britt leading the discussion on commercial lease negotiations. On the weekends, Travis spends his time serving at his local church, as well as surfing, playing guitar, and reading.
