Keith spent eight years in private industry working in production research as well as quality and environmental management.  He also worked as an Industrial Recycling Specialist with UW-Extension’s Solid & Hazardous Waste Education Center (SHWEC) for many years prior to accepting a full-time position at UW-Marinette in 2002.  His lifetime teaching experience includes every level from third grade to college undergraduate. 

Keith's research focus usually involves industrial ecology and pollution control, but he also enjoys military geography (particularly of the American Civil War), political or social history, and seismic/volcanic events. 

Keith served as Associate Campus Dean from the Summer of 2013 through the Fall of 2015.  Some people are born to be administrators -- he now realizes that he is not one of them.
