Phil Keoghan, nine-time Emmy Award-winning host and co-executive producer of The Amazing Race, one of television’s most enduring television franchises, is set to emcee Realscreen Summit’s popular pitch competition, “So You Think You Can Pitch?” presented in association with CABLEready, on January 29, 2013.

Phil’s life has been full of travel and adventure. He started traveling at the age of two accompanying his father, a plant scientist, and his mother who taught music, to third world countries. Phil started working as an assistant camera operator for Television New Zealand before being picked to host Spot On. He has gone on to work in over 100 countries around the world as a motivational speaker, author, television host, actor, producer and cameraman on thousands of program episodes.

No stranger to pitching himself, Phil co-created, co-produced and sold his first series, ‘Keoghan’s Heroes’, at 23. He has since developed and sold original television programs to National Geographic, Bravo, Discovery, CBC, TVNZ, Miramax, Global, FOX, TV3, Sky and SHOWTIME.
