–       Travis grew up asking his grandmother to teach him how to cook but she didn’t think the kitchen was any place for a little boy. After realizing Travis’ genuine interest in food and cooking, she began to teach him.

–       He believes food can relate to everyone and that it’s an emotion.  In fact, Travis cooks whenever he’s feeling happy or sad to feed his soul.

–       After culinary school, he started working in a kitchen which only confirmed this was where he wanted to be for the rest of his life.

–       In his spare time, Travis enjoys playing the trumpet.

–       Travis is starving to make it in this industry.  He’s willing to do whatever it takes to win.

–       His strategy to win Hell’s Kitchen will be to take out the weak links one by one.  Travis says he brings the heat, fire and pain in the kitchen and is a force to reckon with.  He’s not stopping until he’s crowned the next winner of Hell’s Kitchen.

–       Travis doesn’t get angry in the kitchen, he gets furious and he’s not taking bullshit from any competitor.  He hates cry babies and liars. This game is his to win and his only!
