Trevor Schmidt holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Oregon State University and a Master of Business Administration degree with emphasis in Entrepreneurship from the University of Nevada-Reno. Trevor began his career in the U.S. Air Force where he worked in radio and satellite communications, among other cyber roles. During his tenure, he supported global operations and helped defend military networks against the largest malicious cyber attack in Deparment of Defense history. Upon transitioning out of the military, he furthered his education and began working with startup companies in Reno, Nevada. His varied skillset led him to work as a project manager for DxDiscovery (a company which develops rapid diagnostic tests for infectious diseases), to develop a Master’s-level course for the Master’s in Social Work program at UNR, and to work as the Operations Manager for Tahoe Trail Bar, an energy bar company experiencing explosive growth in a crowded industry.
Trevor is also a published author. His six science fiction novels and several shorter works have sold tens of thousands of copies in eight countries. The first book in his series is currently being translated into Croatian. When he’s not writing, he can be found devouring books in the nearest library. He is an advocate of lifelong learning and follows the advice of countless CEOs, reading more than 52 books every year. Connect with Trevor on LinkedIn.
