For the past several years Keith has worked as a marketing writer and social media manager as well as a Communication instructor at the University of Utah.
Keith spent over 7 years at the University of Utah developing course material, organizing research, and writing reports. He worked as both a consultant for the University of Utah's CLEAR program and as a Writing and Oral Communication instructor. During his time at the University, he developed courses and course material for the departments of Writing, Communication, Film, and Engineering for classes involving writing, public speaking, web design, and screenwriting. He has worked closely with students in the classroom and through the WebCT and Blackboard online instructional platforms to help them create and revise works ranging from standard technical papers to resumes, multimedia presentations, personal blogs and websites.
During his time in the University of Utah's CLEAR program, Keith also served as a consultant for the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Bio-engineering. This great interdisciplinary initiative focused on direct instruction and consultation with engineering students. His major focus was on helping students develop their writing skills, ranging from correcting basic grammar to thinking critically about how to present their work. The bulk of Keith's duties involved reviewing, editing, and revising the students' technical writing.
Following his time at the University of Utah, Keith joined Max International, a major network marketing company in Utah. There he was responsible for developing all sales and marketing tools, writing content for the corporate website, maintaining the corporate blog and social media accounts, drafting and sending mass emails, editing and revising materials for the corporate executives, and advising on internal communication. He was involved in the marketing process from conception to execution, including all avenues of strategizing, executing, and delivering. It was a rewarding and challenging experience to work with many different departments to develop the best possible published and digital content for the company.
Essentially, Keith loves creating and developing content that helps to make the abstract easier to comprehend and the technical more accessible for a general audience. He has some working knowledge of HTML and is able to quickly familiarize himself with new programs and applications. Keith believes that the combination of his experiences makes him an excellent critical thinker, content developer, editor, and mentor.
