I’m Travis Overstreet and I’m the lead designer and animator at Crawford Media in Atlanta, Georgia.

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
I’m really proud to have been involved in VH1’s “Acceptable.TV”. An awesome, yet short lived sketch show where i was able to work with most of my closest Channel 101 friends.

Definitely worth watching.
