Yvon Douran - President

Yvon Douran – President

Yvon Douran, founder of Keynote Resource Agency has the spirit of adventure in her blood. Back in 1789 her infamous ancestor, Fletcher Christian, led a mutiny on HMS “Bounty”. The band of Bounty mutineers eventually settled on Pitcairn Island where they burned the ship and lived undiscovered for the next 30 years. It is not difficult then to understand Ms. Douran’s bold decision to leave an idyllic lifestyle on a tiny South Pacific island and travel 13,000 miles across the ocean to study at the famed Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California.

Moving a great distance from her family and friends Ms Douran was introduced to a new lifestyle, a new profession and many new possibilities far greater than the five by three mile Island she had once called home.

After earning her college degree, Ms. Douran invested in an independent record label and contributed her talents to a number of film and video productions. Additionally, her photography has appeared on album covers, in commercial publications and in print. She has also co-executive produced 17 record albums and was a key member of a West Coast based art restoration company.

Along the way she became a lover of the California lifestyle and the piece of fertile soil she now calls home.
