When my parents sold our family home in California a few years ago and sent two gigantic boxes of memories to Houston, like most of us, my childhood memories were a mix of loose images, old certificates, diplomas and a few dusty photo albums (missing a few photos, discolored squares as their placeholders).
They sent everything, every monumental moment in my life… my baby photos, my 6th-grade father-daughter dance, photos from all of my birthday parties, pictures of me and my high school boyfriend Kevin, the photos from the birth of my two nieces, etc. Without space in my home for all of these old memories, they remained in my garage for over 2 years. I knew my kids would love to see their mom as a child and in her younger years but most importantly I started to worry about losing my memories to a natural disaster. We all know a few friends whose homes were devastated in Harvey last year and losing photos and keepsakes were, of course, harder than losing furniture or electronics.
That’s when I was introduced to Jack Perry with Doorstep Digital (www.doorstep-digital.com), a concierge mobile digital archiving service that prides itself in SAVING YESTERDAY for TOMORROW. Doorstep Digital provides organization and archiving of people’s precious memories while offering creative archiving methods, including albums, artwork, video and more. By combining secure, private server technology with the art of archiving, Doorstep Digital is helping bring its customers into the digital age. The company also takes pride in the ability to securely and sensitively preserve many priceless heirlooms in times such as death, divorce, retirement, and other meaningful life transitions.
Jack, a third-generation Houstonian was always passionate about technology, creativity and his rich history, but the business aspect became personal for him in December 2011 when a fire destroyed his family’s home and he lost many of his family’s old videos and photo albums. It was after these moments of sadness that he was ignited with the drive to begin a business that would not only preserve priceless family memories but also “Save Yesterday for Tomorrow.”
