Meet Do LaB's Build Coordinator

When it comes to pillars in the build crew there are few with the tenor like Travis Johnson. In more than a decade Do LaBing, he’s been directing from the helm and tackling tasks like a tidal wave. In his role as our Build Coordinator he’s earned his stripes behind the decks and in the trenches, along with the fitting handle “Jupit3r” for his vast knowledge, steady hand and big heart.  In addition to always being one of the first onsite, Travis comes packing the friendly know-how of Al Boreland, the nonchalant badassery of Chuck Norris, and a stoic sense of adventure, like Abraham Lincoln on a jet ski. With a major hand in nearly all the over-the-top structures that set the backdrop at our events, Travis stands apart as an exemplary human, a dedicated family man and a master craftsman at the peak of the build game.

Name: Travis Johnson
Title: Build Coordinator

What’s a topic you’re currently intrigued by or passionate about?

Up-cycling furniture!

Why is that topic important to you?

There’s something about bringing a discarded piece of stylish furniture back to life… It sparks joy in me.

What’s a lesson you’ve learned from festivals?

That it can exhibit the very definition of an open mind. We can enter with a welcoming disposition and come away looking and embracing all aspects of our culture, with a clearer look at the world overall.

What artist would you leave on repeat the whole way home?

Definitely BULLION! This track “Unless” is a personal favorite. It’s fantastic!
