Michelle-Marie Heinemann and Michael TravinMichael Travin is the co-founder of Resident Publications, Manhattan’s largest weekly community newspaper and Magazine….a must read for savvy New Yorkers who crave luxury travel coverage, reviews of top dining destinations, exclusive interviews, and the latest on Art and Culture.

He is also the Co-Founder of Encompass Media Group, one of the leading companies for non-traditional out of home advertising. He is actively involved in the day to day operations and still finds time to be a devoted Father to his three children.

Over a delicious lunch at Sirio, I listened with enthusiasm as Michael spoke about the importance of being actively involved in your children’s lives. He has coached baseball, basketball, and football and has managed and organized entire sports programs. Keeping his family close and spending quality time together is essential. The family loves traveling together and are preparing for an upcoming excursion.

Michael is wonderfully charming and has a gracious relaxed manner that exudes confidence in his beliefs. One of them being, that traditional values are the cornerstone for todays generation of youth. He serves on the board of several privately held companies and leads by example.

How nice it was to spend time with a true family man that is successful in both his private and public lives and adores his family!

We here at Old Fashioned Mom are proud to introduce Michael Travin as our 4th Celebrity Father!

2. Can you tell us about your children?

My oldest child Chelsey has now graduated last spring from Syracuse… Go Cuse’ and has a fantastic job with Horizon, a digital media company. So far she’s really enjoying working there and all the perks.

My middle child, Courtney is at the college of Charleston and she’s really loving every minute of living in Charleston and college life in general. She’s living it up right now!

Brandon our youngest, is getting ready for moving up to high school next year. He loves sports; basketball is a main sport. I’ve coached all his sports teams and take him to his travel basketball games every weekend. We have a lot of fun either playing sports together, or just hanging out watching our favorite teams together.

3. What is a typical day for you?

My typical day is anything but typical. Because I run a company with many people there are always challenges and things going on that vary from day to day. No one day is the same. Right now I’m concentrating on building my social media with The Resident and bringing the magazine completely upscale which means networking at all the social events that are on going in the city. We hit every major party that is important for us to be a part of.

4. Parents need to be active participants in the lives of their children, I know you have been very involved. Please tell us about some of the activities you have been involved with?

I think it’s crucial not just to be involved with my children during certain events, but to be involved in their lives on a daily basis. Just knowing what’s going on with them and staying connected by listening and being there for them everyday.

5. What family vacations to you have planned this summer?

We all love traveling and that is big part of our lives together as a family. Now that everyone is older and goes in different directions, the family vacation is so important. We are planning on going to Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand this summer. We are very excited about this trip!

6. A large part of our job as parents is to teach our children…. what is the greatest lesson you have taught your children?

I pride myself on being the dad who taught them independence and self reliance. So far all three of my kids are incredibly independent… They don’t need us anymore (sadly)!
