Travis and Kurt first met on the set of a film titled, The Fix, starring Robert Patrick and directed by Adam Kane. Soon after, Travis and his career began to explode literally overnight. He has worked with Steven Spielberg in the film, War of the Worlds, as well as with John Travolta in the film, The Forger. With a plethora of TV credits amassing, quick fame took a quick turn for the worse. Travis realized Hollywood wasn't what everyone thought it was, so he decided to retire from the business as an actor. Being a Marine Veteran and ex Football player, he has built a tolerance for false prophets whilst still keeping his stellar dedication and work ethic. Soon after making the commitment to retire as an actor, new opportunities as a producer began to arise.
Most recently he became one of the producers on the upcoming and highly anticipated film, The Last Full Measure, which premieres on January 24, 2020. A true story of William Pitsenbarger, an Airman who single handedly saved hundreds of American soldiers lives during a brutal Vietcong ambush in the jungles of Vietnam. Pitsenbarger never received the Medal of Honor for his heroics, and not until 34 years later did the men he saved and their wives come together to fight to get the Medal of Honor awarded to Pits, even decades after his death. It has an epic star-studded cast with Christopher Plummer, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Bradley Whitford, Ed Harris, Diane Ladd, William Hurt and Peter Fonda in his final film before his death.
But his biggest achievments have been his service and charity to those whom are less fortunate, from our canine counterparts, to the human race. He has started and been involved with half a dozen organizations that do anything from working with military vets to teaching the arts to young children in Vietnam. Travis is a true real world hero who was awarded a Hero Medal by the City of Los Angeles for jumping into a burning vehicle ablaze and resuing a 72 year old woman from imminent death.
