A proud University of Oregon alum, Keith bleeds green and yellow and follows the Ducks in all sports. He even named one of his pet corgis Autzen after the football stadium in Eugene, Ore.

Keith maintains an active license to sell health and life insurance in Oregon, and is currently working on attaining his Certified Employee Benefits Specialist (CEBS) designation.
A self-proclaimed “Grill Master” and “Sensei of Stir Fry,” Keith and his wife (a Food Channel junkie herself) spend their spare time enjoying their 2-year-old daughter and donate their time and contributions to various organizations such as the American Diabetes Association, SW Washington Humane Society and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Keith recently completed his first century bike ride – 100 miles – for the American Heart Association in honor of his father-in-law, who is a heart transplant recipient.
