Following graduation from University of Tennessee Knoxville with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering, Travis joined GE Power (formerly Alstom Power) in 2005 as a Process Engineer with a focus on dry scrubbers and SCRs. As a Lead Process Engineer, he was responsible for the process design, performance, start-up, and operation of several NID and SDA projects. Following the successful startup of those installations, he has maintained contact and communication with his past customers, and often times he is requested to assist them with performance improvement initiatives and operational assessments. Travis currently holds the roles of AQCS Customer Application Engineer and ELG/SDE Program Leader for GE Power, where he still supports past customers but also leads the technical oversight of new AQCS opportunities both domestic and internationally. Prior to 2005, he worked for 9 years at an East Tennessee utility in various roles. The last three of those years he worked and went to college full time while holding the position of Lead Water Plant Operator and maintaining the highest certification offered in the state of Tennessee. Travis was born and raised in East Tn, and he still lives there on his farm with his wife and two kids. When not working on AQCS projects or initiatives, he can be found on the farm gardening, hunting, fishing, playing with the kids, maintaining the property, or tinkering with the tractor.
