Keith has a wealth of experience with a 30-year history in national security and over 25-years’ background within the space sector.  Via his company Plum Run LLC, he provides advising and consultancy services to entrepreneurs in geospatial intelligence and related sectors. Keith is member of Orbital Insight's Federal Advisory Board, as well as being an advisor to multiple cutting-edge start ups. These include: Hermeus, Anno.Ai, Slingshot Aerospace, Xona,, HySpecIQ, HEAVY.AI, ICEYE, and Ursa Space. He’s also a prolific angel investor in the sector.

Before launching his successful career, he studied for a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Gettysburg College, later completing the Post-Graduate Intelligence Program at the National Intelligence University. Keith now resides in New Jersey, just a hop across the pond from our Bristol and Manchester offices.

Other Projects

Not only is Keith’s wealth of experience remarkable, but he also shares our dedication to raising awareness about the space sector, including joining the Minds behind Maps and SpyCast podcasts as a guest speaker. Although if you prefer video instead, you can’t miss Keith on Wired’s YouTube channel deconstructing spy satellite and surveillance scenarios from a range of television series and films, demonstrating how realistic they are (or aren’t).


EVONA are ecstatic to welcome Keith as an advisor!
