Keith is a Colorado native and loves the mountains there. He spent 40+ years as an insurance agent and certified financial planner.
Keith spent two years in the Army with a tour in the Vietnam War. That experience taught him to never waste time, it’s too precious, and to that end, he has lived an interesting life racing cars and bicycles, skiing, foreign travel, and climbing many of Colorado’s famous Fourteener’s.
It was that love of hiking and climbing that lead Keith to Nepal twice in the 1990s. His new award-winning book “Tenacity: You Don’t Have to Get Lost in Nepal to Find Yourself, But it Helps!” is based on the second trip when he traveled alone and got lost for a few days in the Himalayas.
He started racing bicycles at 54 and became the President of the Colorado Bicycle Racing Association for Seniors (COBRAS) in 2011.
Keith gained international acclaim with his 2004 article “Compassion at Death’s Door” in The American Legion magazine. His other books include: “The Pain and Joy of Love, A Collection of Black & White Photography, Short Stories, and Poetry”, the illustrated children’s book on grieving “Zooch the Pooch, My Best Friend” co-authored with friend Michael Kelley, and three Zooch audiobooks.
Looking to expand his horizons after retirement Keith joined a local Toastmasters club and learned public speaking. In 2016, Keith joined the National Speakers Association (NSA) Colorado Chapter and won the Member of the Year in 2017. He now sits on the Board of NSA-Colorado as the Secretary/VP of Operations.
