As somebody who works out pretty much every day, Travis keeps in good shape, and is able to maintain his athletic build.
Some of Travis's heroes include Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Jeanette Rankin, his mum, and his brother.
Travis adores the great outdoors, and spending time in the open air. He particularly enjoys watching a good sunset.
Among the people, living or dead, that Travis would like to meet, are Bill Clinton, Vincent Van Gogh, Faruka Balk and Bob Marley.
Travis likes the 1980s' show The A-Team, and recalls watching it as a child. He thinks that "B.A." Baracus would make an interesting and amusing choice of Satellite Navigation voice.
Travis loves to read books, and he always aims to have one non-fiction and one fiction book on the go at any one time. Some of his preferred authors include Noam Chomsky, John Keegan (a military historian), Charles Bukowski (a fiction writer and poet), Stephen Fry, Salman Rushdie and Edgar Allen Poe. His favorite books include Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and America by Jean Baudrillard.
Travis doesn't really have a single favorite film, but he likes lots of different movies. The Princess Bride would be in his top five movies of all time, if he actually had a top five. But he just has lots of movies that he likes, such as The Big Lebowski, O, Brother Where Art Thou, Alien and Aliens, Blade Runner and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Travis's favorite superhero is Batman, because he doesn't have any special powers and yet he's still able to beat the bad guys.
If Travis was to choose a preferred pizza topping, it would either be plain and simple with just tomato and cheese, or it would be topped with proscuitto (Italian dry-cured ham) and basil.
Travis's favorite cuisine is Mexican, and he cooks several Mexican dishes. In fact, when the cast of the "Ghostfacers" episode of Supernatural first gathered in Vancouver to film, they all made a Mexican meal together, with everyone contributing a dish. The odd one out was the actor Austin Basis, who apparently made French Onion Soup.
Away from work, Travis's favorite hobby is rock-climbing.
Travis's favorite alcoholic beverage is Scotch whiskey, and he is a member of several Scotch appreciation clubs.
Travis speaks Spanish fluently.
Travis is an avid art fan and critic, and writes regular reviews of exhibitions.
Travis: I went to school with a kid and his dad was in the original Batman movie, and his dad played the Joker's henchman Bob I think it was, and he got an action figure made of himself, and I just thought that was so cool.
Travis: (On working with A.J. Buckley in Supernatural) A.J. and I hit it off straight away, personally. We had no idea what it was going to be like professionally until...we shot the "Hell Hounds" episode in Season 1. And we just kind of fell right into it. It just clicked, you know, sometimes you're working with someone and things don't really fall into place. Sometimes you're blessed and things just all come together. And with A.J. and I things just kind of came together right away. It was awesome. Did we have to work on that dynamic? No. That's how we were from minute one.
Travis: My brother tells me I've developed the unfortunate habit of whistling a lot lately. I can't explain but it's true. Any time I get out of the car or whatever I'll just kind of like spend the next few minutes whistling whatever tune it was that I was listening to last. Which [my brother] says is really, really annoying.
