A Savannah native, Keith joined Deep as programs manager in 2015, and he is a storyteller, creative, and disruptor with several years of experience in education. Most notably, as coordinator of volunteers at iMentor, a youth mentoring organization based in New York City, he was in charge of the recruitment, screening, and training of 1,500+ mentors across 18 different New York City high schools, and he played a key role in launching corporate partnerships and leading borough-targeted recruitment. As marketing manager at TNTP, an education nonprofit with the mission of ending the injustice of educational inequality, he crafted compelling marketing campaigns while serving as the lead project and design manager for several publications and external clients such as the New York City Department of Education.
When he’s not toiling away in his office, Keith serves as the Managing Editor and Creative Director of The Pillow Talk Project, a website dedicated to helping men–and those who love them–rediscover the power of everyday intimate conversations through celebrating their stories about their own journeys into manhood. He also collaborates with photographers and fellow artists across the country, crafting marketing campaigns like #WeSmileToo, to celebrate diversity and bring the power of creative storytelling, healing, and empowerment to the masses.
Keith has attended the Red Clay Writing Project’s Summer Institute, a site of the National Writing Project at the University of Georgia, Athens, and is a National Writing Project Teacher-Consultant.
