Travis Levius (@MisterLevius) is a jetsetting journalist, content creator and tourism marketing consultant.
After taking a harrowing leap of faith of quitting his Atlanta teaching job to pursue the unknown in London (with no money), his journey eventually landed him the ‘World’s Dreamiest Job’ as a freelance travel writer, covering everywhere from Malta to The Maldives for Condé Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, Forbes Travel Guide and more. He creates content on life, travel and the pursuit of happiness on his social media channels.

What Inspired You To Help Launch BTA? What Is Your Ultimate Goal For The Organization

I hope to see an industry that will demonstrate the inclusivity that some profess to obtain, or pledge start doing so. With our work I hope to see more more industry awareness, more allyship, and more proactive measures in shaking up the homogenous stats quo — also, equal pay for Black influencers.

When I’m Not Fighting For The Cause, Things I Like To Do Are

Traveling for super-luxurious work assignments, discovering underground music artists/songs, reading self-help and business books (soon, I’ll be writing them myself), trying new restaurants; and watching a spectrum of YouTube videos for news, culture, trivial content and inspiration.
