The first shows he ever worked tech on were his church's choir concerts at 15, then as a member of Young American Theatre, the youth branch of New American Theatre. Since coming to Chicago in 2005, Keith has worked tech at The Goodman Theatre, Collaboraction, Teatro Vista, Victory Gardens, Pegasus Players and more.
