About Travis

Writer. Editor. Producer. NYC/LA.

I have a decade experience in documentary and non-scripted television and love to use my skills in research and adaptation to write stories that are grounded in heavy research or based on true events.

My writing has been recognized by top industry fellowships such as the Cannes Film Festival CannesFilms Unlimited Screenwriting Residency, Academy Nicholl Fellowship, and Humanitas New Voices.

I have also received Finalist placements from such competitions as the Nantucket Film Festival Showtime Tony Cox Screenwriting Competition, ScreenCraft Public Domain Screenwriting Competition, Sundance Episodic Lab, Shore Scripts Pilots Competition, CineStory TV Fellowship, LaunchPad Pilots, ScreenCraft Pilot Launch, and ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship.

I've had short films play in festivals worldwide, including Berlin, Germany; Cork, Ireland; and the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City.

Seeking representation.
