The company had contract licenses with high-profile companies including Disney, Nickelodeon, Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox and Marvel. In his last year at the company in 2008, revenues grew greater than $4.2 million. He worked alongside head offices in L.A. and New York on a weekly and daily basis.
Keith is the owner of three restaurants in Ottawa: Woody’s Pub, and two FarmTeam Cookhouse locations in the Glebe and on Sparks Street. In 2006, Keith was awarded the Forty under 40 Award Business Achievement Award for professional expertise and community involvement in Ottawa.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” -Theodore Roosevelt
