He earned his B.F.A. in dance and choreography from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2007. Then in 2010, under the guidance of Pilates and anatomy guru, Kelly Kane, he received his Pilates Mat and Equipment certifications from The Kane School of Core Integration. Most recently Travis earned his Thai Yoga Massage certification from Sukha Wong at the Lotus Palm Institute in Montreal, Canada. Working professionally as a dancer in Berlin, Travis initially came to Pilates as a form of cross training while touring and later developed a love for the practice while attending mat classes at The Kane School. Since then he has developed a desire to share benefits of Pilates to those who seek it out. After working in the luxury gym setting of Equinox Printing House, Travis decided to move his teaching practice into more holistic environments and has since developed a small practice functioning out of Studio 26 in Chelsea, and now in Bushwick with Manifest Bodyworks.

He believes that Pilates is one of the smartest ways one can build functional strength, which in turn, will only make your body easier to live in. Therefore his classes and sessions tend toward an athletic approach while helping one understand how to efficiently move and connect with your own anatomical structure. He believes helping one understand their own anatomy is key to helping them also understand their weaknesses, which he will focus on and make you work! His clients have ranged from healthy 22 year old athletes to 62 year young grandparents in recovery from multiple surgeries. He has helped clients with conditions such as disc herniations, frozen shoulder, osteoporosis, pelvic floor issues, hyper mobility, arthritis, nerve impingement, bursitis, various injuries and healthy people who come to Pilates for fitness. He also enjoys traveling in his spare time and is an Aries with Gemini rising.
