Master of big leaps.
Oh hai. I'm sure you've gathered, but my name is Treavor Wagoner. I am a senior product designer, meaning I have expressed knowledge in using user experience and user interface practices to create beautiful web and mobile products. By happenstance—kinda, not exactly—I am also a writer. In 2016, I compiled an anthology of dark poetry entitled, the Remaining Trouble and Other Battles. I love both dearly, but you can send your prayers, condolences, and alcohol-related emojis to throwquestions (at) treavorwagoner.com.
These are the wonderful people that helped me create my first book,
the Remaining Trouble and Other Battles.
During the Remaining Trouble project, Marlon kept me sane by providing his knowledge of crowdfunding campaigns and also checking in to see how I'm juggling creating the book and running the campaign. Marlon is also a creator himself. Currently he's living the L.A. dream and working on a children's story involving a super heroic and funkadelic character he conceived.
Daniel is a well-accomplished forensic chemist and certified yoga instructor. He loves to teach and is eager about learning.

His favorite person to cook for is his picky-eating boyfriend (me).

You can hear the talented voice of my good friend, Stacy Thomas in the audiobook edition. After traveling throughout Asia and Australia, Stacy began her career in voice acting, which has taken off. She's voiced audiobooks (including mine), radio commercials, videos, documentaries, apps, and many other projects. She would love to voice a cartoon one day. Contact her for your project.
Being a fan of her poetry, it was a pleasure to receive feedback for my work from Jacki. She’s well-traveled having lived and worked throughout Western Europe, Asia, and North America. She’s taught English in South Korea and is shifting her career towards international education to help students study abroad. She’s currently working on her first novel.
In twenty days of campaigning to gain funding for the Remaining Trouble project on Kickstarter, 64 backers from all over the world contributed to bringing my first book of dark and haunting poetry to digital and real bookshelves. Many challenged themselves and upped their contributions to get us beyond the funding goal. Basically, they're all heroes.
