You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I'm 36 and have a crazy mix of startup and Fortune 500 consulting experience. My last company, as the first employee, CTO, "COO" and Trusted Advisor to the CEO, I took company from 30k/mo to 12M/yr in less than 4 years. We achieved the #21 ranking on Inc 500's fastest growing business list in 2011 and #187 in 2012. Primary revenue growth was attributed to a subscription based lead generation / marketing system for real estate agents. Yes I code too.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Tech savvy, motivation, passion and experience from a wide array of businesses.

Justin Zimmerman
We worked together at Charfen Institute
I've had the opportunity to rapid conceptualize, build, test, and market technology and marketing solutions with Travis. He will tirelessly ... work to execute an idea to it's fullest. Not afraid to fail. Certainly will pull the plug on an idea if it fails to miss the mark. Always learns from failures and recycles successful into new frameworks. He's also got team building and managerial skills. His cross of programming, team building, marketing, and executive experience makes for a complete "founder-in-box-package" that would be hard to find anywhere else.

Ever since I met known Travis nearly fifteen years ago, he's been cooking up something cool. The first thing I ever remember him building wa ... s a communication platform for what we would eventually come to know as the internet of things. Not only is Travis a technologist, he's a great leader of people. In his recent role as CTO of startups in Austin, TX, I've seen him instill vision and commitment in his team and collaborate across the business. Travis is a thinker and innovator I would love to work with.
