Keith’s calling as a musician began at the tender age of five, when he was gifted a Mickey Mouse organ. He promptly began playing renditions of the commercial jingles he heard on television, and from there progressed to studying movie soundtracks. Keith’s realization of the profound effect music had in connecting an audience with a story launched him on his journey as a composer.
In 1998, Keith's album of New Age music entitled, Etc..., was released through Bay Area record label Noir Records, which led to a collaboration with the composer for the independent film, Park Day, for which Keith provided additional music. This film went on to win the Audience Award at the 1998 Urbanworld Film Festival.
A 2001 graduate of the UCLA Extension Film Scoring Program, Keith studied under notable film and television composers and industry professionals. After completing his studies, Keith was awarded an internship with The Society of Composers and Lyricists Annual Mentor Program and selected as one of only 15 participants in the annual ASCAP Annual Film Scoring Workshop. Keith was later featured in Music Connection magazine in an article focusing on the diverse backgrounds of the group.
In 2005, Keith went on to score the short film The Showdown, and the following year received the inaugural Triple Play Award for Best Technical Integration – Original Score at the Long Island International Film Expo.

Keith continues to pursue his education in composing for picture, most recently focusing on psycho-acoustics for the scoring stage.
Keith's gift for understanding the art of collaboration, united with his passion to continue to create film music which not only parallels, but enhances, the filmmaker's vision, can be felt throughout his music.
