A long time ago, in a town surrounded by corn, long before Al Gore invented the internet, a group of friends made it a normal drinking game to sit around, discuss & make up disturbing sex terms... the "Angry Dragon", the "Cincinnati Taco Chop", the "Sunny Side Up", the "Donkey Punch", etc, etc. These disturbing and disgusting terms started to take on a life of their own. Then one day, while sitting at an Applebee's in Cincinnati, Ohio in the mid 1990's, they heard a table behind them mention a "Donkey Punch" and start laughing. WTF? A couple years later, one of the group heard a "Cleveland Steamer" mentioned at a frat party in Tennessee when he was visiting his girlfriend... WTF? The terms had somehow made their way out of their basement and into the world. Seven degrees of Kevin Bacon? Apparently. Someone said, "Man wouldn't it be funny if we had t-shirts that said 'Donkey Punch'?" In 2001, Travis led a motley group of would-be anarchists into an adventure that would change their lives forever. GetOffended Inc was born. For more than a decade they sold millions of offensive and humorous t-shirts, posters, stickers and books all over the world. In 2012, GetOffended finally closed up shop. The gang was looking down the barrel at middle-age and each of them reacted differently. Travis refused to give up the dream. You can always find him online writing under various pen names, on twitter as @FinallyHeSleeps, at the bar with a Guinness in his hand, playing video games or finding new and creative ways to thwart the acceptance of the inevitable aging process itself.

In addition to performing stand-up, Travis is an award winning author and comedy writer. Using his chronic insomnia as an inspirational tool, he found early success in social media and print. Although he gained notoriety with his dark humor, he has confessed his preference for the twisted nature of horror and suspense. In 2011 he broke the silence on his lifelong struggle with apeirophobia and began work on his first novel. Released in 2012, "Lost in Infinity" marked his debut into the world of psychological fiction. In 2014, Travis released the follow up, "Lost In Infinity: Deja Vu Redux". Travis's humor and writing has been featured in national publications as well as on the refrigerator in his mother's kitchen.
