From 2012 to 2014, Keith worked for a company that provides online interactive mapping services. His role was to investigate concerns from clients of the company's product, and address these concerns using his knowledge of GIS and keen attention to detail. Eventually, he moved into a quality control role in order to help educate less-experienced new hires.
In October of 2014, Keith switched gears and moved into a position where he performed environmental restoration work for the State of Washington. His work primarily consisted of removing invasive plant species and establishing native plant species in riparian areas around Washington. In this position, Keith learned a lot about the field of environmental science and conservation, and some of the unique issues associated with this subject area.
From October of 2015 to September of 2016, Keith worked for the Department of Fish and Wildlife. During this time, he conducted field surveys throughout the Puget Sound, collecting data related to the spawning patterns of forage fish, and subsequently entering these data into a database. During this time, he also contributed writing pieces to the newsletter of the organization he worked for, detailing the work of his team.
During this timeline, from 2012 to present, Keith also spent much of his time outside of work contributing articles to a personal blog he created which covers many topics within the realm of pop culture. At the time of this writing, Keith has published over 350 articles on his site.
