About Us

Our History

Multi Media Cottage, LLC is a small business with big aspirations created by Charlene Dickinson after a 30 year career in information technology.

It began with an interest in helping families preserve their memories that are usually stored in boxes of photos, slides and home movies without organization and infrequently viewed. Transforming these into a video format with titles, transitions, music and theme, create an entertaining experience that is easily shared and passed on. Adding document imaging services was the next step.

Highly accurate optical character recognition software provides the capability to transform paper into many different formats, including fully searchable PDF, which is a very popular option. Other services are multimedia in nature. We've expanded our services based on client requests.

We're not afraid to try something new and the first client always gets a significant price break during our learning experience. We have fun doing what we do and we really enjoy working with our clients.

Our People

We do what we do because we enjoy it. We are technology junkies and style aficionados. Our passion for what we do is what sets us apart and is the reason our clients return again and again.

Charlene Dickinson
Charlene is the head honcho, keeps the books, and keeps the clients coming back for more.

Jeff Menter
Jeff was our tech and style guru. He knows as much about technology as he knows about aesthetics. Balance is important. Jeff now comes in on a contract basis to back up the home team.

Alan Burtrum

Our facilities mix warmth with state of the art technology to provide a comfortable environment for the creation of ideas.
