After obtaining a Master's degree in Journalism from Carleton University in Canada, Keith started his journalism career in 2006 as an editorial assistant for local media in Ottawa, and covered the Canadian Federal Election that year. He returned to China to report on the Sichuan earthquake and the Beijing Olympics in 2008. He joined the Post’s Beijing bureau in 2012. Keith finds it a challenge and a thrill to dig useful information from the subtle insinuations and muted reports in largely censored mainland Chinese media, and turning them into exclusive and insightful stories through hard reporting.
