About Us

Hi, I’m Ryan

A tenacious, loving and energetic multimedia expert who enjoys grabbing his camera and any time he gets to unleash his creativity.

In recent years, the amount of video content being recorded and shared has skyrocketed in a world where digital storage is nearly limitless however previous to that, there’s alot of footage just detoriating and nearly lost forever. Little regard has been taken for preserving these historical moments and has been largely overlooked.

Recognising this need, I embarked on a heartfelt endeavor a few years ago and founded My Home Videos. Driven by a sense of responsibility and curiousity to salvage as much as possible, ensuring these memories are safeguarded from time and available to future generations.

Early on

From a young age, my passion for crafting and editing videos evolved, kindled by the moment my father brought home our first camcorder in 1995, when I was just five. Enchanted by its possibilities, I delved deeper into the realm of video production, creating small-scale masterpieces that ignited my creative spirit. As time unfolded, my trajectory led me to supervising shifts at the local cinema, diligently managing the venue and immersing myself in the captivating world of film. Guided by an insatiable thirst for knowledge and honing my skills, I embarked on an apprenticeship in screen and film, where I was privileged to collaborate with some of the most esteemed professionals in the industry, further fueling my aspirations and fortifying my dedication to the craft.


Continuing my educational journey, I successfully completed a diploma in design, followed by further studies in Design and Marketing at a university level. During this time, I gained valuable hands-on experience working in a production house, where I honed my skills across various multimedia domains, including camera work, editing, lighting, and sound engineering, while creating compelling advertising and promotional content.

However, when the COVID-19 pandemic brought the film and marketing industry to a standstill, I decided to adapt and leverage my diverse skill set and experience. Recognising an opportunity to make a meaningful impact, I chose to focus on converting and preserving precious memories by transforming outdated tapes, offering individuals a chance to safeguard their personal histories and stories.


As a dedicated archivist and advocate for sustainable practices, I am committed to preserving the invaluable cultural heritage stored on tapes. My passion for this cause stems from the recognition that saving tapes before they expire holds immense significance for future generations. Video tapes, whether in the form of vintage audio recordings, video footage, or historical documents, offer a unique window into the past. By meticulously digitising and safeguarding these tapes, we ensure that the knowledge, experiences, and cultural expressions of previous generations are not lost to the ravages of time. This proactive approach to preservation safeguards our collective history and ensures that future generations can access and learn from the treasures of the past, fostering a sense of continuity and cultural appreciation.

Moreover, my work contributes to sustainability on multiple fronts. The process of digitising tapes, when executed thoughtfully, reduces the need for physical storage space and minimises the consumption of resources required for the upkeep of aging tape archives. This aligns with the Sustainable Development Goal of Decent Work and Economic Growth, as it creates opportunities for skilled professionals in the digitization and archiving fields, ultimately supporting local economies and livelihoods. Additionally, the educational materials derived from these digitized tapes can be utilised in a variety of contexts, from academic research to public awareness campaigns, enhancing educational resources and contributing to sustainable education development. In essence, my work at the intersection of archiving and sustainability epitomizes a forward-looking commitment to preserving our cultural heritage while fostering economic growth and ensuring access to valuable educational content for generations to come.
