DVD Your Memories was formed in 2006 in San Diego, California. We specialize in converting family memories recorded on older media such as video tapes, film, slides, negatives, photos and all types of audio into digital formats on DVD or hard drives. Personal connections are the most precious treasures in all the world, and preserving them now will help keep them safe for generations. Come visit any one of our stores in California and Colorado and enjoy your memories on DVD.
Bryan was hired on as a technician in 2007, but soon proved capable of much more. Within four months, Bryan was the first manager of the San Diego location, and helped plan, set up, and grow each of the other stores. A wearer of many hats, Bryan now works on new product development, quality control, and new systems/policies from customer satisfaction to transfer and encoding methodologies. Bryan also has a hand in researching, purchasing, maintaining and updating all of the tech and equipment the company uses, and is the main man when it comes to support in both software and hardware for our employees and customers alike. He drinks a lot of coffee. Who can blame him?
Outside of the office, you’ll likely find Bryan listening to music, playing guitar, or exploring newly available digital media. Legend has it if you trick Bryan into revealing his one weakness, he has to grant you a wish.
Bookkeeper and Business Development
Brandi Mitchell was a customer of DVD Your Memories when we hired her as our in-house bookkeeper and business assistant. She used her family home videos on DVD as “in-van entertainment” during a long drive the previous summer. As a result of “DVD-ing” her memories, she discovered that her kids love watching videos of themselves as babies (better than Sponge Bob!) and we found an employee who shares our company’s vision! She is committed to documenting her life and family history through the lens of her digital SLR camera. Her family and friends love the updates to her online photo and video gallery and enjoy flipping the pages of her custom photo books at home. She is known around here for assigning office “theme days” (with required snapshots), recounting tales of her two young children’s latest discoveries (“Mom, I know leprechaun’s exist, but, come on, is there really a Solar System?!”), and final score announcements from her weekly women’s league soccer games. Brandi has fifteen years of professional experience in small business management, customer service, and bookkeeping, and is a graduate of French Language and International Policy Studies from the Monterey Institute of International Studies. Her interests, skills and enthusiasm for capturing the sights and sounds of the present and past make her a fantastic fit for the DVD Your Memories team!

Stephanie Barberi graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a BFA in photography. She has been invested in both analog and digital photography formats for the last nine years. Before coming to DVD your memories, Stephanie worked for numerous artists, gaining hands-on experience in the fine art and photographic world. Heavily interested in fine art and portrait photography, she is constantly shooting and can always be found with a (vintage) film camera on her shoulder. “I believe in grain, golden hour, color corrections, composition, the square, random chance, the banal, light leaks, aging film, experimental processes, the romanticism of Polaroids, nonsense, and color harmony.” One of Stephanie’s favorite things to do is digitally restore age-worn images to their original state.
