Travis Valentine was a huge contributor to the creation of Happy Hour with Cameron Stiehl, directing and editing the majority of Season One's episodes. Having grown up enduring extreme bullying for being gay, he has made it his life’s mission to make an impact for the LGBT community.
Beginning in theatre, Travis performed in companies, tours and choirs in over 50 major plays, musicals and operas. As president of multiple theatre organizations, his zest for leadership and storytelling helped him evolve to directing and producing during his Bachelors program in the School of Theatre, Music and Dance at San Diego State University.
After developing multiple original works, Travis looked to expand his horizons by enrolling in the Masters Directing program in the School of Television and Motion Pictures at Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Earning his degree, he has become extremely involved in the Bay Area and Hollywood film communities working on several feature films, television shows and independent movies.
Travis loves living on the historic corner of Haight and Ashbury with his boyfriend of 7 years, Joe Castiglione, and his prize-winning pooch, Coco. He can’t wait to bring Happy Hour with Cameron Stiehl to you!
