Introducing SoundStory

SoundStory was conceived under the premise that every person has a unique story to be told. Be it a story of great success, overcoming challenges or just one of simple pleasures – what better gift can you give than forever documenting the story of the lives of loved ones? This is a gift for the interviewee, but also for all of the family members who get to hear this professional interview crafted to tell the story from the only relevant viewpoint: theirs.

Everyone has a story. Let’s hear it!

These hosts will utilize their years of experience to help guide the conversation to ensure the end result is a gift that keeps on giving. This unique model provides a great experience in the moment, but also memories, audio and video that will live on much longer. That is SoundStory.

My siblings and I had such a great time telling family stories and expressing our admiration and fondness for our parents.  Tim and Pete made the entire process easy and accommodating.  After getting back the audio and listening to the interview my siblings and I all were very happy with how it turned out and is exactly what we had in mind.  We are looking forward to presenting this unique gift to our parents for Christmas.

My dad is an amazing and humble man.  He’s done so much in his 86 years on this planet, but he would never toot his own horn.  He is so truly special to us and I am so grateful to have this recording.  When my kids are ready, I can’t wait to share this with them. This is something that I truly will cherish forever. We so appreciate you.
