Keaton grew up in the construction industry. His stepfather owned a construction company and Keaton was always on one site or another as a kid. After college he went back to construction, working first on commercial projects then building luxury beach houses in his hometown of Galveston, TX. After going back to school, Keaton joined DND where he got the chance to supplement his construction knowledge with experience in remediation and large-scale project management in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Since then, he has had the chance to work on a variety of projects all over the country. Keaton has gained experience working in the insurance industry, working on initial claims estimation and appraisals. He has bolstered his restoration knowledge with both practical experience and industry certifications. Keaton is constantly looking for ways to excel at his work and incorporate new technologies into the industry. He has
experience in 3D mapping of both loss sites and new construction sites using Matterport and recently acquired an FAA licensed to fly commercial drones for inspections.
