Position: Digital Archive Engineer

In his endeavors at BDRC, Travis brings together his years of experience working in the software industry with his passion for Buddhism and meditation. He graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2004 with a degree in Software Engineering. After his studies at engineering school Travis spent 3 months on a leadership expedition through the backcountry of Mexico with the National Outdoor Leadership School. After returning from his outdoor adventures Travis began his career working at IBM as a Tools Support Engineer and then swiftly moved on and worked at Vistaprint as a Release Engineer for the next 7 years. During that time, Travis became interested in yoga and meditation and in 2010 discovered his love for Dharma at the Boston Shambhala Center where he began to devote himself to the study and practice of Buddhism and meditation.

In 2014 Travis connected with Jeffrey Wallman through a member of the Shambhala community and has been working with BDRC ever since.
