Trave Harmon has always been involved in technology. At five, getting his first Commodore VIC-20, then migrating to a Commodore 64, Commodore Amiga 500, 2000, and eventually getting his first IBM Clone in 1988.
From MS-DOS 3.3, Windows 3.1, and more he started from the beginning with BBSs (bulletin board systems), basic networking and more.
In high school, he took college classes at night becoming AutoCAD certified, business management trained through Woodstock Academy in Woodstock Connecticut along with network engineering classes and squeezing in every spare moment learning and taking as many classes that sleep would allow.
In 1996, one day after high school graduation, Trave started working for an ISP in Marlborough known as Quest Technologies of Massachusetts, he left after they were acquired. He eventually started working with his father until he turned over his business to Trave in 2001.
In May 2001, he created an LLC and started fresh with a new name, look, pricing and more. Triton Technologies was born.
Since that time he has taken many endeavors. From purchasing a home, getting married, charity, politics and having children.
Since he was a kid, and it affected him too, Trave has been an advocate for foster parents and adoption. With the birth of his second child, he and his wife have taken in over TWO dozen children who needed a temporary stable place to stay. With the final two placements, he and his wife have begun the process of foster to adopt.
It’s his belief that, “With issues facing society today, we need to work together to help one another while individuals work through those personal issues.”
Working with DCF (Department of Children and Families) he has assisted in the promotion of fostering to adopt and has helped in this process with new families who never thought it was possible. With his own family, his wife’s family, in-laws and growing up, fostering and adoption have always been a part of his life and it is a critical issue in his life.
He works closely with Connecticut Foster Adopt, who are currently experiencing a shortage of foster homes for children and youth.
