Travis splits his time between corporate management practices and the legal areas of the ever-evolving medical marijuana industry. In addition to his duties as CEO of Shift Cannabis Co., Travis currently sits on the board for other well-established medical marijuana companies to include California companies Auntie Dolores and Tradiv and Colorado businesses Sporitas and PotGuide. Travis is also a Founder and Board Member of Green Dream Cannabis in Boulder, Colorado. Travis’ expertise in the medical and recreational marijuana industry is evidenced by his annual invitations to speak and moderate panels at the National Marijuana Business Conference in Las Vegas and the National Cannabis Industry Association Conferences in Denver and New York City. When Travis is not speaking on the national stage, he’s making waves on the national page, having been interviewed for features in Worth Magazine, Dope Monthly, Marijuana Business Magazine, and numerous local Colorado publications.
Travis may be a CEO, attorney, and entrepreneur, but his most important position is as a loving husband and caring father to three children. Having worked in a family business early in his career, Travis understands and respects the subtleties of decision making that impact those dear to him. The business of business runs deep in Travis’ blood, but he still considers himself a naturalist and adventurer by heart, continually longing for The Rocky Mountains and always planning his next journey beyond the boardroom.
