About Me

Hello there, I'm Keith. I'm a videographer & designer from Ohio. 

I enjoy working to define problems and build solutions.

I have a deep passion for making and helping others create.

When not in front of a camera or computer, I love to travel with my wife and experience the great outdoors with our German Shepherd, Lola.

A quick overview

I got started filming when I was 10 years old. I started with filming and shooting photos of my friends skateboarding. This was when I learned to edit on the family computer in my parent's kitchen.

In 2004, I applied the HTML and CSS skills (that I learned from customizing MySpace templates) to make a website to share my skate photos and videos with my friends. It loaded slowly, and the design was terrible, but seeing people interact with something I made was one of the most satisfying things I've ever done. I haven't stopped shooting or designing since. Here is a photo of me in 2012.

Around 2008, I started freelancing and taking internships with local design companies.

After getting my BFA in Graphic Design from The University of Akron, I started working at a Software & Design Agency (that I still work for).

In 2019, I started making YouTube videos about cameras, tech reviews, and tutorials. I still love making videos.
