Growing up at the foot of the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York, Travis is an avid outdoorsman who is always ready for the next big adventure. A true Renaissance man, Travis is a master stone mason and sculptor, accomplished painter, college varsity athlete, Ironman, historian, lecturer, and world traveler. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture, Travis combined his architectural education with his masonry experience to form a company that specialized in natural stone consulting and building healthy, sustainable public and private projects.
Travis was introduced to the Creative Water industry when he accepted the role as Manager of Architecture and Planning for the Aquatic Development Group. After thoroughly enjoying his time designing hundreds of projects and helping ADG win multiple industry awards, Travis recognized that the future of the industry was international and set his sights overseas.
As the Director of Operations for the Middle East, Travis uses his unique experience as professional collaborator, water park designer, and niche construction company owner to do what he does best: Build and manage diverse teams by working collectively with clients, design professionals, skilled contractors, craftsmen, businesses and government to achieve efficiency and quality within set budgets, strict deadlines and ever-changing work environments.
Travis also enjoys traveling to lecture at colleges and local governments on smart growth, alternative energies and green building. His favorite adventures are the ones he goes on with his wife and young son.
