Keith Breitbach’s career in media spans over 25 years, and he brings a wealth of expertise to NDP in the interconnected fields of video production, campaign management, and viral marketing.
While still in college, he landed his first radio job as the overnight disc jockey at a favorite classic rock station in his hometown of Dubuque, Iowa. During that same summer, he became enthralled with film production while actively following the making of the movie Field of Dreams, which was being shot on location throughout eastern Iowa.
A graduate of the University of Iowa, he continued working as a host of a popular call-in radio show and became active in local politics. Keith soon found his skills in such demand that he managed numerous local, federal and statewide political campaigns over the next two decades.
