Classroom & Events Technology Team Lead
Travis Pagel, Classroom & Events Technology Team Lead, is the I&TS Spotlight Employee for April and May. Born and raised in the Tacoma area, Travis is rapidly setting down permanent roots here as he establishes himself at PLU and moves closer to a summer wedding with another native of the region.
Travis is the product of a close-knit family that lives and thrives in the Tacoma-Seattle area. His father Doug, sells structural steel, and his mother Robin, deals in playground and related equipment. Between them they have raised three sons -- Kyle, a business major at UW-Seattle; Connor, a senior at Life Christian Academy and a Running Start student at Tacoma Community College; and Travis, who attended high school at Life Christian Academy and graduated from PLU in 2007.
Travis met his wife, Jessica while they were both working as student employees for a Jazz Under the Stars performance, so you might say it was multimedia technology that brought them together. They have a house in the Proctor district and take great delight in cultivating both the yard and friends at the house. Add passions for the outdoors, multimedia technologies, and building a satisfying home life and all the signs point toward a long, happy life of friends and family in the Greater Tacoma Area and the Great Pacific Northwest.
