Keith was born in the Year of the Rabbit. In his teens, he practiced yoga in the Ananda Marga tradition as a way to deal with adolescence. Throughout his career as a musician (including a long time gig as house pianist and musical director at legendary jazz venue, side-on cafe; and playing the Rhapsody in Blue for six pianos at the Gershwin Centenary) and dancer (favourite roles include Prince Rama in the Ramayana and The King in The Firebird) he felt creatively stimulated but spiritually hungry. Then whilst backpacking around Thailand he stumbled upon Jivamukti Yoga in a girlie bar in Chiangmai. He practiced religiously with Jivamukti teacher Casey Gramaglia.
In 2005 Keith gained certification from Samadhi Yoga through Advanced Certified Jivamukti teacher, Katie Spiers. In 2007 Keith realized his divine dream of becoming a Jivamukti teacher, gaining certification from founders Sharon Gannon and David Life. Keith regularly studies with Sharon and David and has assisted them in New York, Hong Kong, Bali, Byron Bay and Sydney. Keith recently spent almost 3 months completing the 850- hour Jivamukti Apprenticeship Program as Jessica Stickler’s very first apprentice; an honour of which he is very proud.
He recently passed the Board Exam and is now an Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher.
Keith now divides his time teaching future enlightened anarchists music, yoga and religion (sometimes all at once) at Xavier College; teaching Basics and Open Classes and workshops at Jivamukti Yoga Sydney; singing kirtan; and spreading the Jivamukti message throughout Thailand and the Philippines. He is honoured to serve his teachers by causing a little trouble every day fighting the good fight for non-human animals.
