Keith needed a place to be creative but not in the spotlight. He found a place behind the scenes, literally, in the theater.
What can offer a creative outlet as unique as you?
The DAC can do that.
Keith has been in the creative world most of his life.
After finishing his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism, he began a career as a newsroom graphic artist, creating charts, maps and illustrations at papers in Abilene and El Paso before doing the same at the Durango Herald for 7 years. He gave up that path when different passions — singing, playing music and helping people — turned into a full time job at Grace Church, where he now works with and trains a growing team of musicians in his role as music pastor. That role gives him experience diving into the technical ups and downs of a non-profit’s lighting, sound and stage needs.
Keith is a lifelong lover of music and has a collection of more than 3,000 albums in various formats, from beloved classic country on vinyl to well-worn classical cassettes to 80s hip hop CDs to his packed iPods that feature a little of everything. (Actually a LOT of everything!) He’s developed a keen ear over the years and loves learning all the details involved in engineering great sound.
Joining the staff in 2019, Keith has been in Durango for 20 years now.
