Travis was born and raised in a small suburban town just east of Toronto, ON called Cobourg. He's a PhD student in sociology, but he wastes most of his time watching/reading about/writing about baseball. He currently lives in Windsor, ON, just across the Canadian border from Detroit where he works as a singer-songwriter and a Graduate Teaching Assistant and researcher. He is and always has been a fan of the Toronto Blue Jays. You can find his writing at FanSided's Call to the Pen and RunsBattedOut.com and in the past he has written for TheScore.com's Getting Blanked and Halo Hangout.
