About Keith

I'm a fellow Veteran and passionate mentor in the military transition space with nearly 4 years of mentorship experience as both a "freelance" mentor on sites like Veterati, and as a volunteer through organizations like Hire Heroes USA, American Corporate Partners, USO Pathfinders, Onward2Opportunity, and Military Transition Roundtable. I have mentored and assisted hundreds of Veterans, and I'd love to help you!

By day, I'm a Management and Program Analyst with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, with a significant background in HR, physical security, teaching, and leadership consulting/instruction. I reside in Virginia Beach, VA, with my wife as we traverse this new chapter of our lives known as "empty nesters."
