Travis’ optical career began in 1984 when he went to work for a lab that was to become Lenscrafters. He continued working in labs until 2003, when he joined his father in the retail side of the business. Earlier this year Travis left the family business to join Sunstar as the General Manager. His passion for the optical industry comes from his drive toward accuracy and from his pleasure in passing his knowledge to others. After hours, Travis takes his love for machinery and detail into his woodworking shop!
Cristi started her optical career in Reno in 1989, working at Southwestern Optical which was a predecessor name for what eventually became Sunstar. She stayed there for two years and then worked in several labs in Nevada and California, her home state, until she returned to Sunstar in 2013. After spending her days keeping the lab going, Cristi and her dog, Atlas, hit the dog park for some fun.
