Thanks for visiting our website! Digital Roots Studio was founded in 2012 by Sean Sexton & Andrea Dumas, just 8 months after their wedding at Lake Merritt Gardens in Oakland, CA.  Oakland born and raised, Sean and Andrea met as students at Bishop O'Dowd high school, and reconnected on MySpace 8 years after graduation (thanks, Tom!), quickly bonding over their love of story-telling and entrepreneurial projects.


When the first LaCie CD burner came out in the mid-1990s, Sean was the first kid in school to have one, creating mix-CDs for classmates.  This personal passion led to a professional interest for all things digital, from anti-virus software tech support to video conversions and film digitization.


Meanwhile Andrea was collecting family stories from her grandmother and working at the school's bookstore.  Andrea's enthusiasm for narration through reading and writing later morphed into a career path of sales and customer service, although those family anecdotes were never too far from mind.


It was, however, the after-effects of the 2008 depression that inspired this couple in love to become business partners; Sean's experience with computers and converting analog materials to digital melded seamlessly with Andrea's background in small business and preserving family history.


Digital Roots Studio started in a one-bedroom apartment, and we'd meet our trusting clients at the local mailshop by appointment.  6 years and 3 offices later, we continue to serve many returning clients, our local community, and customers throughout the U.S. and abroad.


With 17 years of combined experience in digital media preservation and over 30 years of customer service experience, we pride ourselves on providing superior digital transferring & archiving results for an honest price and with a smile.


When we aren't transferring your memories to digital, you may find us biking on the Bay Trails, cheering the Oakland A's, or grabbing a bite with friends on Piedmont Avenue.

Our office is located at 1329 Solano Avenue, Albany, CA 94706.
