Over the years, Keith has gravitated towards "big picture" types of problems that call for him to wear many different hats. Aligning dozens of agency stakeholders to develop a common monitoring platform for hundreds of field technicians in the Columbia Basin to aggregate data collection and metric generation has been right up his alley. The Sitka Principal smiles, "I'm incredibly fortunate to show up every morning surrounded by very smart people engaged in meaningful, challenging work."
Keith has invested nearly 30 years into software development and credits his leadership success to persistent focus on delivering business value with government or private sector clients. Keith earned a B.S. in Business with a concentration in Finance and Law from Portland State University. He also holds the title of inventor on US Patent #6,404,866 B1.
Keith lives in West Linn, Oregon, with his wife and three children. In his spare time, he has volunteered for kid-related causes including Stand for Children, serving as a CASA for abused and neglected children, coaching youth football, and volunteering to chair his school district’s bond campaign. He is currently the Chair of the West Linn-Wilsonville School District Board of Directors and a member of the Budget Committee for the Clackamas Education Service District. In the rare moments he has time for hobbies, you will find him with skis on his feet or a fly rod in his hands.
