Travis joined Protegga LLC as a Computer Forensic Technician in August of 2007 when just a Freshman at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD).  His in-depth knowledge of computer systems, electronic data, and the Internet has been an asset to the company. His responsibilities included Information Technology management of Protegga’s extensive forensic, e-discovery, and Research and Development environments.

While at UTD, Travis began studying electrical engineering and learning about electronic circuits. In the fall of 2009, Travis and two fellow students submitted a project proposal for the annual University of Texas at Dallas Business Idea Competition in which the team designed a system that facilitates a more marketable, economically viable, and friendly online gaming tournament experience. Extensive research into Internet infrastructures and statistical latency analysis helped this project succeed by claiming first place in the undergraduate division.

In May 2013, Travis earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Dallas. His research focused around systems engineering, control systems, and thermal cooling systems. These ideas are the basis of and can be easily applied to many scientific procedures, which transcend throughout most known systems.
