As a Senior Travel Editor for Miles Partnership, Steven Keith is responsible for directing content strategy and creation for a variety of award-winning travel guides and travel websites for cities and states across the country. Before joining Miles in 2007, he spent five years as State Travel Advertising Manager for the West Virginia Division of Tourism, where he developed “Wild and Wonderful” advertising campaigns that won national awards for Best Travel Guide, Best Technical Marketing, Best Radio Advertising, Best Video and Best Special Promotion.
In his spare time, Steven is also a food writer and restaurant critic for the Charleston Gazette-Mail newspaper, where his weekly column “The Food Guy” has won top honors from the West Virginia Press Association as the best lifestyles/feature column in the state. His work has also been published in Bon Appetit, Fodor’s and a variety of regional culinary publications. Although he used to enter cooking contests, he soon learned it’s much more fun to judge them and now serves as a regular judge and emcee at food events around the state.
But outside of these jobs, the accomplishment Steven is most proud of is being able to raise three young boys without losing his sanity. At least so far!
Steven grew up near Huntington, West Virginia, and graduated cum laude in 1991 with a degree in journalism from Marshall University, where he was named a Distinguished Alumni in 2000. He now resides in Charleston with his wife, Dr. Amy Keith, and sons Adam, Isaac and Ryan.
