My Services

Personal History

I organize events and reflections from your life and capture them in a keepsake book. It may contain elements of history, genealogy, biography, and cultural research.


A Travelogue captures the adventure and insights of a particular travel experience. It is the ultimate luxury souvenir. And it ensures your travel will remain distinct and meaningful even after the years have passed.

Corporate History

For this, I capture the history and arc of your company in order to effectively convey its story to customers. This important marketing tool can truly personalize your company brand and memorialize its critical milestones.
