Co-founder | Strategy & Communications Officer
Travis is a cross-disciplinary futurist focused on social and environmental inequalities - and the data, models, and strategy to address them. He grew up in the industrial decline of Western Pennsylvania, where the toxic legacy of pollution and working-class exploitation took a heavy toll on his family and formed early lessons in the need for economic and social justice.
Travis came of age in the dynamic political world of New Mexico. His involvement as an organizer, candidate, and stakeholder engagement leader has formed the basis for his inclusive data and modeling philosophy. He stands for and from the working class - whose data and voice have historically been excluded from government and financial systems. As a founder and team leader, he believes in grounding a team in mutual respect, cognitive empathy, and rational compassion - for each other and the people they serve.
As a tech executive and data strategist, his work has focused on supply chain prediction and impact quantification using massive new data streams. Travis’s strategic futurism sees an adaptive push for huge change where the truth of our impact on each other and the planet is revealed and addressed through data science + dialogue. He co-founded a business intelligence platform company which scaled to eighty-two countries and serviced thousands of locations. He has modeled and managed communications for a diverse range of issues including deforestation, wildfire tracking, disaster response, geopolitical dynamics, social determinants of health, and GHG emission quantification.
Travis studied Politics & History at the University of Sheffield, and business at the Anderson School of Management at the University of New Mexico.
Co-Founder | Advisor
For the past decade, Jason has been at the forefront of the energy transition: real decarbonization of the energy supply chain, methane emissions reductions, commodity differentiation and tokenization based on environmental performance across supply chains, new ES&G products & risk metrics, indices, and other original solutions to fill market gaps. This work has directly contributed to keeping well over 3 billion cubic feet of methane out of the atmosphere. Jason also played a key role in establishing the early ESG differentiated commodity market for digitized assets and attracting and closing significant venture funding from large strategic partners.
Jason’s theory of quantifying, tokenizing, and tracking externalities is founded in the fusion of his learnings. He was a Computational Physicist and Member of the Advanced Concepts Group at Sandia National Labs. He then served as a Research & Data Scientist at New Mexico Tech’s Institute for Complex Additive Systems Analysis. He has since performed senior-level production engineering consulting with major oil & gas producers and electric utilities. His extensive data science and product development experience reaches across multiple industries. Jason has worked with the oil and gas producers, utilities, and standard organizations, and NGOs to drive awareness and technology & policy solutions to accelerate carbon reduction and the energy transition.
As a leader, Jason’s three superpower(s) have been described as: 1) Being down to earth and able to develop substantive heartfelt connections with all types of backgrounds. 2) The ability to inspire others to collaboratively work together to solve society’s biggest problems. 3) The ability to synthesize vast, noncontiguous, complex information and offer new insights.”
Jason is focused not only on the product, technical, and market innovations required for transformation, but on creating the essential culture for world-class collaborative teams who can take a product from idea to reality.
Jason studied Astrophysics & Religious Studies at The University of New Mexico and Physics & Biology at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
