Born in Grand Junction, Colorado, Travis Winn grew up on the rivers of the American southwest, eventually working as a river guide in Grand Canyon National Park. Starting at the age of sixteen, he has explored many major rivers in Western China in the provinces of Tibet, Sichuan, Qinghai, and Yunnan by both kayak and raft. He reads, writes, and speaks Chinese, and his expeditions have been featured in Men's Journal, Outside Magazine (Chinese edition), and on China Central Television. In recent years, he has focused on engaging Chinese decision makers in learning about their rivers by bringing them to experience them first hand. He enjoys bringing people together through the river experience.
