First worked for Columbian Pictures in public relations. Started working with a photographer that was photographing models in posing straps. Then he worked on the Golden Boys magazines for Calafran. At that point he started selling films via mail order. He claimed to be the first in both X films and videos. Worked on some of the first Falcon films and then went to Brentwood where he filmed half of their work.
After closing down Brentwood he quit the porn business for two years until Falcon convinced him to work on Huge.
He was connected to Jeff Stryker and brought him to L.A. but it took three months before he felt Stryker was ready to film. They lived together for over a year. Travis and Stryker plotted his porn career and the plan was stuck to.
