Travis was born and raised in Scottsdale, AZ. A third generation Arizonan, Travis has always had a strong sense of service to his state and country. Travis attended Arizona State University and it was during this time that he enlisted in the United States Air Force / Arizona Air National Guard's 161st Air Refueling Wing which was founded by Barry Goldwater in 1946. Growing up, Travis learned the value of a hard day's work whether on his family’s cattle ranch or helping out wherever he could in the family aviation business.
Travis completed basic training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, TX and was ultimately trained and served as an aircraft maintenance technician on the KC-135E Stratotanker achieving the rank of Staff Sergeant. Upon graduation from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agribusiness, Travis was selected for Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training at Laughlin Air Force Base in Del Rio, TX. Following Officer Training School and after being commissioned as a Second Lieutenant, Travis attended the 1 year course and earned his wings in August of 2003. Travis currently holds the rank of Major and is serving as an Aircraft Commander and Instructor Pilot in the Arizona Air National Guard with over 3000 hours in the KC135E/R.
As a part time traditional guardsman or "citizen soldier", Travis has deployed to numerous forward operating locations throughout the world in support of the ongoing war on terror. He has also flown over 50 combat missions and has flown in support of numerous homeland defense and humanitarian relief missions.
Utilizing the skills he learned growing up in Arizona and through his experiences in the military, Travis joined International Air Response Inc. (IAR) in 2003 as the Vice President in charge of Operations and decided to purchase the company with his brother in 2009. International Air Response has grown into the world’s largest provider of specialized aerial services with its fleet of 5 Lockheed C-130’s and a newly formed FAA PART 145 maintenance, repair and overhaul facility. Travis currently serves as the Chief Operations Officer at IAR's headquarters located at the Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa, AZ. Travis's unique background relating to aviation, world events, and sound conservative business policy contribute greatly to IAR's dynamic customer base and ongoing growth and success.
In May of 2016, Travis announced his candidacy for the Arizona House of Representatives in Arizona’s 12th legislative district which encompasses Gilbert and Queen Creek Arizona. After winning the August primary, he was elected to the 53rd legislature on November 8, 2016.
“I look forward to bringing my generation’s perspective to the State Capital and beyond. We need more Veterans, more business owners and more Americans who understand how precious our freedoms and liberties are serving in this vital capacity. I will be a voice of freedom and reason for my constituents and will fight for what is right under the constitution much like I have in the skies over the battlefield.”
Travis and his wife Patricia reside in Gilbert, AZ with their two daughters Katelyn and Kristyn.
