Keith lives in London, United Kingdom, and has been a leisure vehicle owner for over two decades.
He loves to attend campervan and music festivals, and has designed and built his own specialist camper that allows him, his wife and dog to live off-grid with home comforts for many days.
He was educated at Enfield Grammar School in Enfield, Greater London until the age of 16.
After that he had a number of career changes (including working in a Pontins Holiday Park entertaining the guests!) until he eventually decided on a career in the automotive industry, and ended up running his own business for many years. He sold the business in 2018 and went into semi-retirement.
With time on his hands and using previously gained experience maintaining his own leisure vehicles he decided to retrain and hence achieved the National Caravan Council (NCC) Motorhome Service Award in 2019.
