Keith was born December 12, 1958, in Hartford, Connecticut, USA. He has lived and worked most of his life in southern New England. In high school, Keith participated in Football and Track & Field. After graduating from high school, he decided to enlist in the U.S. Air Force where he served from 1978 to 1982, mostly overseas. Upon his Honorable Discharge from the U.S. Air Force he enlisted in the Connecticut Army National Guard and served until 1985. Since 1982, he has worked over 35 years in the computer field, including owning his own business building and repairing computers, webpage design (including several award-winning sites), graphics design, and photo restoration. Keith is also a certified welder, holding certifications in MIG, TIG, gas, and SMAW.
In the mid 1980's, Keith was able to watch the filming of 'Mystic Pizza' from a nearby downtown office. As it turns out, in 2007, he was to work with Annabeth Gish on 'Brotherhood', and in 2018, with Conchata Ferrell on 'A Very Nutty Christmas'. In the 1990's, Keith enjoyed watching the filming of 'Amistad' in and around the Mystic Seaport, however, acting professionally wasn't something he himself ever considered. He had performed in a number of school plays, including the lead in 'Hamlet', and writing, directing, and performing in the role of assassin John Wilkes Booth in his own production of "Lincoln", but it wasn't until 2006, when his father saw a casting notice in the local newspaper for 'The Bronx Is Burning' and encouraged Keith to attend the casting call. With no experience and a not-so-flattering selfie with his digital camera, Keith didn't think he had much of a chance. To his surprise, he was called the next day for a uniform fitting as an NYPD Police Officer. Not only that, in his very first scene, he was featured! Another highlight from 'The Bronx Is Burning' was an on-screen nod from Casey Siemaszko.
Keith has been featured in a number of television and film productions including the ESPN mini-series 'The Bronx is Burning', the Showtime series 'Brotherhood', NewTV's 'Assassin Nation: The Baltimore Plot', a music video for the indie rock band Donovan Wolfington, 'The Cars That Made America' for The History Channel, and 'A Very Nutty Christmas' on Lifetime.
In September of 2017, Keith worked on a series of television commercials for TaylorMade Golf, Nike, and CitiGroup, with World Champion professional golfers Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson, and Jon Rahm. These commercials debuted nationwide during the 2018 U. S. Open golf tournament.
In July of 2018, Keith was seen in Stephen King's series "Castle Rock' with Melanie Lynskey on HULU. In October, he had the pleasure to work on a photoshoot with New York-based photographer Chase C. Middleton. In November, Keith participated in 'Vigilant Guard 19-1', a joint Disaster Response Exercise with the United States Northern Command, the Massachusetts State Police, the Massachusetts Army National Guard, and local Sheriff's Departments. The exercise was held at the Massachusetts State Police Training Academy in New Braintree, Massachusetts. Keith's role was as a protester/rioter. He was even 'arrested' once and put in the police van, aka the 'paddy wagon'. Throughout the Christmas season of 2018, Keith was seen in the Lifetime Original Movie 'A Very Nutty Christmas' with Melissa Joan Hart, Conchata Ferrell, Barry Watson, and Ryan Caltagirone, and with Jessica Lowndes, Maddie McCormick and Cole Gleason in the Hallmark Channel Original Movie, 'Christmas At Pemberley Manor'.
Keith can now be seen in Season 4 of 'Testing: The Series', a dramatic web series about strange scientific trials experimenting on humans.
Keith has just finished working on the Lifetime Channel's 'Stalker's Prey 2', 'The Dangerfields Class Of '64', where he played the role of 'Foreman', and 'Reflections: Project Chameleon', in the role of 'Forensic Team Member'.
Keith is set to start work on the Black Duck Productions 'The Bootlegger' filming now in Newport, Rhode Island. He'll play the role of United States Coast Guard Admiral L. T. Chalker.
It's always exciting to an actor to be recognized when in public, and someone says "Hey, didn't I see you in...". Keith has been recognized several times. In December of 2018, Keith was out shopping for, of all things, Christmas cards, when he was approached by two women. One said "Oh my gosh, we just saw you on TV the other night". They had been watching 'A Very Nutty Christmas' on the Lifetime Channel. Recently, a Facebook friend from Bucharest, Romania told Keith she had recognized him from The Hallmark Channel's 'Christmas At Pemberley Manor'. Keith has been told by producers, directors, and fellow actors, that he has "a face with character" and can easily fit many roles. He is well-liked for his friendly personality and sense of humor and respected for his professionalism on the set, both on and off camera.
Throughout the years, Keith has volunteered at the local Neighborhood Center, as well as a number of libraries and museums throughout Connecticut, and many organizations, including the Connecticut Special Olympics. He volunteered with the American Red Cross on 9/11 and for several weeks after. In addition to volunteering, he spends his free time involved in activities such as hiking, biking, kayaking, and weight lifting.
