Business Owner

A 1971 graduate of Ingleside Texas, Keith served 8 years in the Marine Corps, with 2 of those years in Washington DC as part of the ceremony details serving the White House and Camp David. He would settle in Seattle Wa., raise his family and build a successful remodeling contracting business.   In 2000 he was approached by one of his business associates and friend Gary Drivstuen about helping develop a revolutionary and industry changing new product which would ultimately become Hide a Hose.  Keith would be trained in everything central vacuum by Gary Philips of Gary’s Vacuflo in Portland Or.  (Gary’s Vacuflo is the nation’s largest central vacuum dealership, with Gary having a similar desire to always be looking for and being a part of breaking technology.)  When the economy turned sour, Keith turned south to his roots.  In 2011 he returned to South Texas and began to rebuild his business.
