ABOUT ME...

Zak Keith

Zak Keith
Zak Keith
Musician, published author, research writer, translator, volunteer, traveler and unabashed hedonist
“Polymath” and “renaissance man” are some of the more flattering terms that have been used to describe me — titles that I'm not sure I deserve. Like everyone else, I am but the sum of my life circumstances and the choices I made. Born in England, I lived in several different countries before settling in Sweden and Switzerland. Music has always been a part of my life. I began performing on television as a child, which may have turned me into something of an applause junkie. Later, I branched out into other fields such as IT, management, professional writing and translation (here's my CV, if you're interested). Although I was mainly driven by curiosity, a keen interest in how things work and the need to make ends meet when job options were limited, it is in my nature to want to get things right, to pursue knowledge and excellence. And in the course of immersing myself in these very different professions, I was fortunate enough to be paid for doing what I love and to be considered an employable “expert” by world-class companies and musicians. I am also genuinely flattered that my writing has been cited by academia and politicians across the world — all I set out to do, was to put into words things that I strongly felt needed to be said.
