Travis started his career in New York digital agencies working on brand and digital strategy for clients such as adidasOriginals, Y-3, LVMH, NARS, L’Oreal, and Bloomingdale’s with a focus on social event activations, augmented reality, content strategy and agile production.
After moving to Los Angeles to build and lead a creative content team at a data and performance marketing agency, he went through the (typical) existential crisis of working in agencies and went searching for a new home—one that felt like it was doing everything differently in the constant noise of ‘same’.
That search brought him to Seed.
