About Travis

Primarily a writer and director, my number one key passion is storytelling, and my favourite medium for telling those stories is motion picture. I genuinely believes that if you have the passion to tell stories, then you have the ability to create worlds, and that's exactly what I love to do, especially when it comes to engaging stories that tackle topical and important subject matter such as gender (in)equality, the LGBT+ community and mental health to name a few.

I also have a proven on-screen presence, with numerous acting roles in film and television, as well as presenting and hosting roles for major commercial campaigns.

As a prolific writer, I've scripted numerous short films, and a large number of global commercial video and TVC campaigns, and have a number of scripts in the work, for both TV and film (Check out the loglines/scripts uploaded on this page). I've also published a novel, and as a journalist had over a hundred articles published, including a number of articles for IGN which have received global acclaim. I've also produced and directed two music videos and a short film, as well as a number of corporate documentaries, including an acclaimed short documentary that takes a look at the work that Australian charity Youth Off The Streets does in Sydney.
