He leverages social science research to address issues of organizational culture on both the individual and group levels.

As an educator and facilitator, both in and outside of academia, Travis is committed to transformative pedagogies that utilize a learner’s cultural world as the starting point for deeper understanding, increased empathy, and reflective action in the world.
