Travis Aaron Wade joined the Marines right out of high school. He spent 4 years training with Golf Company 2/23 4th Marine Division. It was on Hawaii's South Shore that he became an expert at shooting the M16 and M249 Saw Gunner, and took Sniper Courses with STA Special Ops. In 1998, after he received an Honorable Discharge Travis attended Citrus College in Glendora, California where he majored in criminal law and theater. In 2005, he landed his first lead role in the short film The Fix followed by parts in War of the Worlds and Jarhead. He's been busy every since in both film and television.
Travis has worked with several charities over the years donating a percentage of every paycheck to a different charity. He is involved with his T-shirt line for ATA: Arm the Animals (They generate funds for small, reputable, independent animal shelters that are struggling for resources.) and his company Sin Cera LLC where he promises a patented invention "in the candle world that will reshape the entire candle industry and save lives".
For several years Travis has been teaching children in Vietnam which opened up the opportunity for him as a personal coach/instructor for the Vietnamese contestants in the 2008 Miss Universe and the 2010 Miss Vietnam.
