Travis has spent the last two decades working at the intersection of sustainability, finance and philanthropy as a business builder, innovative operator and impact investor in early stage business and social enterprise. His belief in business as a catalyst for positive change has led to involvement in over a dozen startups, with a heavy focus on clean technology and societal health and wellness related issues. In 2011, Travis and Kimbal Musk launched The Kitchen Community and created Learning Gardens and “real food” educational outreach campaigns to connect kids and parents to healthier food across the nation. The Learning Garden is an innovative outdoor living classroom designed as a catalyst for community-wide behavioral improvements in childhood nutrition, socialization and student achievement. Travis is now working on several early stage ventures, including a bio-diverse soil additive company and a regenerative community farm system and nature-based retreat center in Northern New Mexico.
