Keith Fritz is the son of a carpenter raised in Siberia, Indiana. His passion for furniture blossomed early - as a teenager, Keith designed his first piece of furniture, an award winning ornate Bombay Chippendale secretary with over 1200 hours logged in its design and creation. After attending seminary at St. Meinrad College in Indiana and graduating from Catholic University in Washington, DC in 1999, Keith immediately opened his first workshop on Capitol Hill and began building custom furniture for DC's high-end design market.
