Keith began his foray into the filmmaking world after watching The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. From the moment the credits started to roll, Keith knew what he wanted to do with his life.
In 2008, Keith made a five minute film for his middle school Capstone project. He made his own "Twilight Zone" episode wherein a bully is punished by a new kid with the power to make anyone say what he wants. The film won an Honorable Mention at the Vermont International Film Festival in 2008.
From there, Keith has continued to expand his knowledge and skills with film. He has made multiple short films, including Stalker in 2015: an eighteen minute film about a college student who discovers a presence from his dream is stalking him. The film won first place at the Lyndon State College Student Art Show.
In 2016, Keith completed his first feature film - Departure - after investing $500 of his own money and relying on a handful of cast and crew. In the span of five months, Keith wrote, produced, directed, shot, acted in, and edited the film. Departure is currently in the festival circuit.
Keith is currently producing, writing, and directing a short film, Mirror, that is set to be released in August, 2017.
But Keith doesn't stop at narrative films either. He was a freelance videographer at the Center For Rural Entrepreneurship based at Lyndon State College. There, he directed, shot, and edited multiple marketing videos for small businesses in and around the Northern Vermont area.
Keith is an avid writer and reader, something that took hold of him very early on in life. After reading Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel, The Secret Garden, when he was five, Keith began to write his own short stories. His first story, written at age seven, was entitled The Food Battle wherein a box of macaroni and cheese fought to win the heart of a box of pasta. In fourth grade, though, Keith wrote a short story about his deceased uncle, whom he is named after. The story was published by The Burlington Free Press - Burlington's largest newspaper.
Keith expanded his writing interest as he got older. When he was fourteen he attempted a novel. While completed, Keith has not let anyone see the manuscript, titled Generational, due to its poor quality.
In high school, Keith continued to publish short stories and excerpts of manuscripts. He wrote two more novels that he never attempted to publish, submitted short stories to his school's literary magazine - Detour. During his senior year, Keith wrote a novella entitled The Danger of the Flame which he self-published on Lulu.com. After some time online, Keith took the novella down.
In college, Keith continually submitted short stories and fiction to literary magazines, while also posting stories online for social reception. He amassed thousands of views on the website Writerscafe.org for his writing, and one of his short stories - Dancing With the Devil - was published after being viewed on this site.
Keith continues to submit short stories and poems for publication. In 2016, he finished a novel titled The Truth About Eden, which he currently is in the process of publishing.
Keith currently resides in Burlington, VT where he is pursuing his passions. He hopes to move soon.
