His first professional role was as Ferdinand in a touring musical adaption of the Tempest by Shakespeare. Three years of Drama School at Bretton Hall followed and after graduating in 1999 he began work for Cragrats Theatre Company as an actor in various touring and in-house productions.

It was in the wintery months of 2000 that a chance meeting with an old friend in the Green Room at Cragrats gave Keith the impetus to pursue a career in presenting. 3 weeks later he was walking up the plank of his first Cruise Ship in Southampton and a few years later ended up as the Entertainment Director of the Famous QM2.

In 2013 TV opportunities led to him back to dry land and these days he’s busy working on screen in TV all over the world.
