About Meg Macintyre

Since I started Megabyte Memories in the fall of 2016, I have become an expert in my field.

My varied background, education, and experience has provided an excellent foundation on which to build my photo organizing business.

Megabyte Memories: The BeginningMy own personal photo organizing adventure led me to start Megabyte Memories Photo Organizing. I had been working part-time as an office administrator for several years, but was always thinking of starting a business. In the fall of 2016, I discovered the right business to start. The timing was perfect, because my younger daughter was starting University.
Helping people preserve their memories is very rewarding. I've heard so many stories from my friends about photos lost due to computer viruses or phone damage. If you watch the news, you'll hear many more stories of photos lost because of fire or other natural disasters. The objects people most want to save are their photos.
Being a successful Professional Photo Organizer requires a passion for organization, superb attention to detail, and great computer skills - I've got all that covered!
I look forward to helping you preserve, protect and share your cherished memories.

Background and ExperienceMy varied background, education, and experience has provided an excellent foundation on which to build my photo organizing business.
As a member of website development teams, I helped create and manage large product databases, including the Home Depot product database. There are many similarities between that type of work and organizing a digital photo collection.
In 2003, I earned my Diploma in Technical Communications from Humber College. I have written and edited many technical instructional documents and training manuals. That experience is proving to be very useful as I write instructions for software user manuals as well as guides for my clients.
For seventeen years I ran a successful business knitting sweaters. I sold the sweaters at large craft shows such as Toronto's 'One of a Kind' show. Running a successful business and learning organization, discipline, and administrative skills was great preparation for operating my current business. In 2003, I closed that business, partly as a lifestyle choice as I was a mother to two young daughters.
