Meet the Planning Staff
Keeve Brine joined the Maryland Department of Planning in October 2019 as a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Planner in the Geospatial Data and Analysis Division. As a GIS Planner he primarily works with the Protected Lands GIS data, which he says is “exciting for me, as I love nature and am glad to be a part of its preservation in Maryland.”
Keeve brings a breadth of experience to his role; this is the fourth Maryland state agency for which he has worked since earning his undergraduate degree in Geography and Environmental Planning from Towson University. His state roles have been diverse, including working as a Natural Resources Planner in the Shellfish Certification Program with the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE); as, first, a Field Technician in the Forest Pest Program, then later, as an Agricultural Inspector on the Spotted Lanternfly Team in the Plant Protection Program with the Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA); and as a Risk Analyst with the Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA). In the field of planning, Keeve has also worked as a Planner for Baltimore County’s Department of Planning in its Neighborhood Response Team and Land Preservation Program, and as a U.S. Volunteer Technical Coordinator for World Relief, an international humanitarian non-profit organization.
Born in Nashville, Tennessee, Keeve was raised in Hillendale, Maryland (located between Towson and Parkville in Baltimore County) since he was quite small. Today he lives in Parkville with his wife Carissa, their two children, Weston and Haeleigh, and two dogs, Zissou and Meeco, who happily occupy the majority of their time. Some of our favorite things to do together are camping, hiking, kayaking, road-tripping/travelling and dining at their favorite restaurant, Bombay Night’s Buffet. He also loves to barbeque and is a big fan of music, whether listening to it or recording his own.
