Keith A. Douglas is the executive vice president for The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company. He graduated from the University of Virginia with a civil engineering degree but after constructing buildings on the UGA campus for 20+ years, and sending three kids through UGA, he feels more attached to UGA than UVA.
He first came to the UGA Marine Institute in 2008 to participate in Project Sapelo, a massive volunteer effort to mothball the old dormitory/admin building. Since that event he has organized an annual Whiting-Turner volunteer work weekend.
Keith has always painted. He enjoys painting coastal scenes from Florida to Maine. About 5 years ago he started taking an annual painting workshop with Bo Bartlett (from Columbus) that helped with his figurative work.
