Keith was introduced to the outdoors at age 11 with a week long backpacking trip in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. From that moment on, he could barely contain his interest in outdoor adventures. Eight years later, he got his first straight shot of the west on a six week cross-country climbing and mountaineering trip. Hunting, fly-fishing, trail running, telemark skiing and a host of other front and backcountry pursuits quickly filled his life. Graduate school at the University of Washington beckoned and he never looked back.
Keith joined Hall and Hall in 2008 after spending 13 years developing conservation agreements with rural landowners across the west. Working for a variety of conservation organizations, his experience includes working as Vice President of Lands for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, as Director of Land Conservation for The Nature Conservancy in Wyoming and as executive director of a local Californian land trust. The close relationships required to conduct large, complex conservation transactions gave Keith an intimate understanding of the deeply personal values that each person brings to their ownership plans, an understanding that he carries into every aspect of his business.
