Keith has over 30 years experience with swinging egress and fire doors. In the mid-1980s he began working for a commercial door and hardware distributor in State College, PA. Later, he worked for door and hardware distributors in South-East Pennsylvania. In 1996, he joined the staff at the Door and Hardware Institute (DHI), and the rest (as they say) is history.

Over the past 20+ years, Keith has had the pleasure of teaching many door and hardware technical classes, as well as speaking on industry-related topics at national and regional conventions.

We are actively seeking a few more experts to add to our DoorSafety Team.
