BIOGRAPHY
Keith is a British citizen born 71 years ago in Liverpool. He grew up in the Bristol / South Gloucestershire area.

He has lived in Germany since 1986 and in Berlin since 1994.

He has worked most of his career in the aero industry, lastly as an engineer for Rolls-Royce Deutschland in Berlin.

As a boy Keith was an avid trainspotter and over his lifetime has had a model railway layout. He is currently building an 00 scale layout of Westbury in Wiltshire, measuring 4,5 x 3,5 metres, digitally controlled, with many locos and rolling stock.

Keith has, with his wife, travelled around the world on Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2 over the last five years.

On QM2 in 2019 on one of his cruises, he did a presentation on his title “Trains and Boats and Planes”, organised by Edward Moffatt (Asst. Entertainment Director) labelled in the daily programme under “Interest Corner”. This attracted about twenty as the audience.
