Houston-native Traveon Dinell Rogers is a musician, performing artist, photographer and budding filmmaker who draws inspiration from thought-provoking, authentic representations of culture through multimedia content. Armed with a passionate conviction that stages and screens of all sizes are today’s most powerful educational tools, Traveon demonstrates that scholarly endeavors can be explored beyond libraries, lecture halls, and books.
His interests and artistic ventures are creative as they are intellectual and methodical. While living Mexico, he involved himself with Panafricanistas México and was an associate producer of the short documentary, “Jamaica y Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico,” which has been screened at Harvard University, the San Diego Film Festival, Cineteca Nacional in Mexico City, and Pan-African Film Festival in Los Angeles. His debut work, Structures and Waterways, which premiered at the first opening reception of Latin Week Houston in January 2020, is a visual dialogue that explores cultural implications and historical associations through subliminal messaging and photos.
Traveon is currently working to start a community-based multimedia company with friends in Mexico.
