Director, Major Gifts & Partnerships

Keith joined Little Kids Rock in April 2009 as an intern and quickly realized he was home. For years, he managed the organization’s communications, marketing and branding, while heading up Little Kids Rock’s media and public relations efforts. He now works in donor relations, working with Little Kids Rock’s Regional Advisory Boards and top individual and corporate donors to raise the funds necessary to keep music thriving in our nation’s schools. Keith also manages the organization’s artist relations, finding meaningful ways for musical luminaries to support fundraising efforts, promote Little Kids Rock’s work to mass audiences, and inspire the organization’s supporters, teachers, and students.

Keith grew up with a passion for writing and storytelling. He’s freelanced for the Montclair Times, has run a successful public relations campaign for the Centre County, PA Special Olympics, has worked as an editorial assistant for Gotham Sports Media, LLC., and interned for Penn State Athletic Communications. He has covered press conferences of sports icons and has written and edited web content for Division I collegiate sports. Keith holds a B.A. in Public Relations with minors in History and International Studies from Penn State University and spent a semester abroad in Australia.

He plays harmonica and guitar in his free time.
