Keefer is a hacker at heart and in spirit; as a strong advocate for equality and sustainability in online and physical spaces, he seeks to narrow the digital divide and ensure free, open access to information and software utilities. Keefer can often be found hours deep into notes, textbooks, and/or code and draws from his diverse background to tackle challenges as they are presented. Since his first year of his undergraduate degree, Keefer has been working on various projects under the co-advisory of Dr. Daniel Gillis and Dr. Judi McCuaig at the University of Guelph. He joined the eNuk team in early 2018, as an application developer with the goal of making the eNuk platform accessible, even without traditional internet access. In his free time, Keefer runs the Tokumei Project, a truly anonymous social media platform that operates without algorithmic biases or user profiling.
