    Guide: Washington, Alaska

    Keith was born in Yakima, WA, but spent most of his childhood moving around the country. After serving four years in the Navy, Keith finally got into the outdoors in a kayak on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Keith graduated with a BA in English Writing and Rhetoric and began travelling abroad to teach ESL. After a stint of vagabonding, he returned to the US and developed a passion for climbing and skiing, soon moving to the Pacific Northwest to work in the outdoors. He has since spent time as a ski patroller and mountain guide. When not working, Keith can be found rock climbing, skiing, trail running, eating noodles, and searching for new music.
