Keith has worked for companies both large and small, and has been writing software before his teenage years. His first program was a jukebox that played the Star Spangled Banner on the internal speaker of an old PC that used actually floppy floppy disks. Resigning the mantle of software hacker and engineer after starting Twin Engine Labs with his identical twin brother, he can now regularly be found in the daylight wearing a shirt with actual buttons on it.

Under his leadership, Twin Engine Labs has flourished and released numerous products for brands large and small, including Cisco, Symantec, OpenTable, O'Reilly Media, and many more. Twin Engine Labs engineered the smash hit "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore" after partnering with Moonbot Studios, which won the academy award for Best Animated Short Film. The app, prior to the award, was named as a breakthrough innovation by numerous sites and magazines, and topped the charts for weeks.

When he is not glued to his inbox or on a phone call, he can occasionally be found chatting with other entrepreneurs in #startups on Freenode's IRC server, and lurking on HackerNews and Reddit.
