Founder and Creative Director

An AudioPortrait is a sound investment ... in the past ... for the future – the legacy of a lifetime.

It could be the story of an individual or family, or an oral history of your organization. We customize your story for a commemorative event, anniversary, retirement, or anything and anyone you choose as the focus of your AudioPortrait.

Our producers preserve your story in state-of-the-art audio with many production options. How it sounds is up to you.
