The Dog Owner
“Originally from Perry, Oklahoma, Travis grew up with all kinds of animals, including dogs (specifically pointers). He received a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Communications and Public Relations (with a minor in theater) from Oklahoma State University.”
“After college, he moved to Los Angeles where he currently works as a bartender while pursuing an acting career. He describes himself as funny, tough, competitive and sensitive. He says that both he and his dog, Presley, play hard and sleep hard. He is not a fan of dogs in clothing/costumes.”
“Presley (a sixteen-month-old pure bred boxer who weighs 53 pounds) loves to play non-stop and his best tricks involve visual commands. Travis describes Presley as hyper, intelligent, affectionate, ultra-friendly and playful. He knows how to shake, stay, heel, lay, back up, kiss and play keep-away on command.”
