About Travis

Travis grew up in Johnson County, KS, but loves the water. He moved to the California coast shortly after graduating high school. Family is always on his mind. So, he traveled back to Kansas often to be with them. He moved several times to be close to the ocean, but always found his way home. Before Kicksite, he spent most of his professional career in sales and business management. He just finished his last semester of college, finishing a new degree in web design and development. While he does not have the martial arts background that some of his colleagues have, he does have a passion for helping others achieve their goals.

What’s your favorite moment working with a martial arts owner?

I truly enjoyed my first calls with some of our overseas clients. I spent several of my first nights finding new ways, for special situations, to use Kicksite in ways it may not have been originally designed to accommodate. Helping with each specific need really helped my understanding of how flexible Kicksite is as a martial arts software. It is truly fulfilling to trust the software and the team behind it enough to know that the answers are there to be found.
