Biography edit · view history

An avid gamer since he was a teenager, Keith has always enjoyed playing both wargames and fantasy role-playing games. In 1980, he began his career in computer programming and soon combined his technical expertise with his interest in games. Keith joined the research and development team at Strategic Simulations, Inc. in 1982, beginning his business relationship and friendship with Joel Billings and Gary Grigsby. His first project at SSI was the conversion of the wargame Eagles, from the Atari to the Apple II. During his employment at SSI, Keith wrote a graphics engine that was instrumental in the design of several wargames. In addition, he wrote programming code for many wargame and fantasy role-playing titles, including the 1988 release of Pool of Radiance, the first computer version of Dungeons and Dragons. His instrumental role on the SSI R&D team led him to the position of Technical Director.

In 1996, Keith took on a new venture, working as an independent contractor with Gary Grigsby. Together, they created the widely acclaimed Steel Panthers Wargame Series.

Keith's technical expertise, along with his avid interest in computer games, is propelling him into a new venture with Gary Grigsby and Joel Billings. He is looking forward to producing many new and interesting software titles at 2By3 Games.
