Let’s work together and find a purpose higher than self.

Stop letting the worries of tomorrow take away the happiness of today.

“Those who matter don’t mind and those that mind, don’t matter.” Dr Seuss

Embrace who you are!

Embracing this wisdom, I strive to make everyday count.

My journey has taken me from the tranquil lakes of Alaska to the majestic mountains of Colorado. Each experience has taught me something valuable, and now, I want to pass those lessons on to you. Here, I’ll encourage you to step out of the daily grind, chase what truly fulfills you, and appreciate the simple joys of life.

Join me and discover how embracing your true self can transform everyday life into something extraordinary.

Discover the innovator within

To me, innovation isn’t just about groundbreaking ideas in aerospace—it’s about rethinking the everyday. It’s finding fresh approaches in our relationships, our business strategies, and even our personal challenges.

Embracing innovation means committing to plan A so completely that plan B becomes unnecessary. Life’s too short to waste time on things that don’t make us happy.

The Journey Is The Reward Keith’s path from mind to heart

Today, Keith believes being kind outweighs being right. His writings on race, love, faith, and nature in his book Taking the Mask Off represent this shift. A shift by making the longest journey one can imagine: the 18 inches from one’s mind to their heart. You’ll find this same resolve and insight in his upcoming fiction novel, The Sixteenth Republic, which tells a story about overlooked heroes who end up saving the day.

Taking the Mask Off channels a powerful message that Mother Teresa left us: “We tend to draw the circle of our family too small.” Keith extends this circle to include you. It’s time we set aside judgments and collaborate to learn from one another, growing stronger together.
