About Keith

I am a former Electronic Engineer from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, CA.  I have a Master degree in Technical Management from the University of Phoenix.  I spent over 12 years of my carrier designing audio circuitries for leading companies such as Fender Musical Instruments and Oticon/Bernafon company.  My second, current and could be my very last carrier is as a Hearing Aid Specialist.  I got involved in working with the hearing impaired when I worked for Phonic Ear, Inc, a division of the Oticon family of companies.  This experience had influenced me profoundly when it was time for me to decide on my second carrier.  For me this is no short of a calling, and I have been doing this for over 14 years now.  I understand hearing loss and hearing aids, and will always, passionately, trying to do my best for my patients.
