Your stories are worth preserving.
Storyhouse helps you gather your favorite family anecdotes, jokes, and recipes, photos and videos, then turns them into a multimedia collection.
Many of our services begin with an in-person interview in the privacy of your own home or at your next family reunion, anniversary party or wedding and result in a priceless video, book or website you can share now and for generations to come.
Where do your memories live?
Every customer we've helped said that they've been thinking about doing this for their parent or grandparent for years, but never got around to it. Perhaps it's because they don't know where to start or that they're too busy. Often though, they don't feel like they get enough quality time with their loved one, so when they do, the last thing they want to do is pull out a mic and a camera.
Storyhouse personal historians are passionate about helping each family gather the stories that matter most to them. We've found that working with the family to ensure that we ask all of the right questions is key and that having a third party conduct the interview can often illicit some surprising stories the family may not have been able to extract otherwise.
KATHRYN GONZALES, FOUNDER & CEO
Native Austinite and a Journalism graduate from UT-Austin with a passion for storytelling and story capture, Kathryn left her job working in product management in NYC to move back to Austin in early 2013 to pursue her dream of launching a story capture service. She is on the board of PelotonU and volunteers for Meals on Wheels and Girls on the Run.
BEN LEFFLER, PARTNER & ADVISOR
Also a native Austinite (rare breed), Ben worked for several startups and freelanced for a few local publications after graduating from UT and decided to return to grad school there to pursue Public Policy. He’s worked in a number of policy-related positions, but was interested in taking on a new challenge in the startup space, so happily jumped on board when the opportunity presented itself at Storyhouse.
