Growing up in the Detroit area, Keenan had two passions: Basketball and Film. From a young age, Keenan would accompany his mother to the public access television station where she volunteered, and take notes from the station veterans about the magic of VHS recording. As he grew older, he continued his love for filmmaking by creating music videos starring his somewhat willing younger brother.

A unique combination of art kid and athlete growing up, his two passions met at Michigan State University where Keenan played varsity basketball for four years including a Final Four trip his senior season while majoring in telecommunications.  

Playing basketball his whole life Keenan was able to play, live, and work with people from a variety of different backgrounds, which continue to have a heavy influence on his filmmaking style.

Since graduating, Keenan has worked as a short form director focusing on visually compelling storytelling in both narrative and commercial spaces.
