    Hey guys! My name is Travis, I am from small-town Texas and got my start in the outdoors as a kid prospecting in the mountains with my father. I served 10 years in the army which afforded me the opportunity to have hiked and camped in or around but not limited to: Mexico, Germany, Italy, Iraq, Afghanistan, France, Bulgaria, Austria, The Czech Republic, and the United States.

    Gear in the field is essential. "That sounds pretty easy right?" If you are heading out of your comfort zone you need gear. Having the right gear, to me is more than just essential, it's vital. In addition to being a morale booster having the right gear gives you peace of mind because anything can happen. In my opinion, this is always the right mindset to start any trek: being prepared and having the confidence to keep going and get to your next point on the map. Having the right gear and the right knowledge gets you there. I can help you with both!

    While enlisted in the United States Army I graduated from U.S. Army Ranger school and did three tours in Iraq and the fourth tour in Afghanistan.

    Passions are everything! For me, it was cooking and flying. I graduated with a degree in Food Science, so yeah I am a total nerd when people start talking about sous vide eggs. I go on they tell me for nigh on an hour about the denaturation of egg proteins and the pH level needed to not curdle the milk I am using to make ricotta cheese(" I digress, I could talk for hours about food science). It went from profession to true passion when I took my newfound cooking knowledge as well as my certified pilot knowledge to the outdoors!

    I am here to use my experience to help you with whatever you need to get out there and enjoy nature and find passions of your own! Whether it is camping, hiking, fly fishing, kayaking, outdoor open flame cooking, etc. Chances are I've done it and I'm more than happy to help you navigate the same waters.

    So please feel free to reach out and I'll be happy to use my experience to help you with whatever you need to get out there and enjoy nature and find passions of your own!

    Easy to talk to
    Took the hesitation out of purchasing gear I have wanted for a bit but uncomfortable with what would work for me. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Provided great selection and gave me the time I needed to select. Looking forward to my next purchase and building my gear so I can explore the world around me.

    Enjoyable process
    Really enjoyed talking through some of my gear requirements with Travis. I have a trip coming up I'm not sure exactly how to pack for and Travis helped me figure out some great options and brands I was less familiar with or hadn't thought of.

    Travis was a great help to me. I'll compare the various socks when I receive them and likely order more myself and as gifts. I'm glad that I happened upon Curated!

    I am brand new to all of this, so I had a lot of questions about sizing, intended use, and general advice. Travis was able to answer all of my questions and made me feel really comfortable!

    Travis selected appropriate gear catered to my needs and budget. He wasn’t pushy and knew what he was talking about. He also has a sense of humor which was perfect for me. Super great interaction. Will use again. 5/5
