While still in his Pitt dorm, Kunes says, he and a friend started a nonprofit, Call to Serve, taking mostly college students on three-week service trips in RVs to places like post-Katrina New Orleans.
Not only does Rewind Memories offer services for personal use, but they work with businesses, schools and government agencies on professional conversions. Their home base will always be in Pittsburgh, but they are are planning on expanding to other cities in the near future.
In addition to his work with Call to Serve, Adam opened the doors to Rewind Memories in Squirrel Hill in 2011. He and his crew transfer old tapes, photos, and film to DVDs and digital files. So if you want to keep that video of you lip-syncing to Janet Jackson’s, Escapade in 1991 forever and ever, Adam is your dude.
He continued running the business upon earning his bachelor’s degree in 2007. After five years of operating online, Kunes set up shop in Pittsburgh’s East End.
