Collectionaire was created by Stanley Kinsey, a former Disney executive and entrepreneur looking for a better way to preserve, organize and share his family's most cherished digital memories and keepsake items.
Stan knew that his family's best memories and mementos were buried in tens of thousands of photos and dozens of hours of home movies, and were at risk of being lost or forgotten. These included special scenes in home movies, photos of family vacations, best photos of the kids and family, videos of his kids' best recitals; stories of ancestors, etc.
While HE knew what was in the collection and could find these memories, he wanted a way to curate his media to create a living archive so that keepsake items would always be perfectly presented "front and center", and easily accessible by any family member from any connected platform... computer, tablet or mobile phone.
He initially thought that uploading his media to a photo cloud site would be enough, but this solution wasn't meaningful... digital albums with important photos and stories were nested, hidden, and always difficult for others find. And he found he needed multiple cloud sites, as the best sites for photos were not the best for home movies.
Creating Collectionaire solved all these problems. Each person and each family now has a collection of their best life moments. And with navigation via their family tree, even first-time viewers can intuitively find the family's keepsake treasures and stories.
We hope you find Collectionaire to be a rewarding experience and we welcome your input and suggestions to make it even better. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook. And keep Collecting!!
