Travis is currently a student at the MIT Media Lab. His work explores how to use proximal networks (optical and radio) to create natural, intuitive interactions between people, the physical world, and the digital ecosystem.

His work advocates a shift from centralized information networks to scalable, user-dictated networks that mimic how humans naturally exchange information (peer-to-peer, vision based, and local).

Travis's projects have been featured in Fast Company, MIT's Technology Review, Tech Central, Engadget, The Verge, Discover Magazine, and Mashable.
