Travis spent his formative years at Salesforce from 2006-2012 in a number of sales roles including building the first Platform Sales team. His path to sales leadership was not an obvious one, having started as an Oracle DBA at Chevron before recognizing he was a mediocre developer and moving to more customer-facing roles.

Travis lives in San Francisco with his wife, eagerly awaiting the hurricane of their first child arriving in the new year. He is super excited, and kinda panicked.
