  • Lauren Giusti:

    “What was once intimidating has now become an approachable and easy task! Just finished SurroundUs Services DIY Photo Organizing class and feel confident that I can now fully utilize Apple and Google Photos. Jordan was extremely knowledgeable and a skilled teacher, who clearly explained the process of reining in thousands of photos (from many devices) into one simple organizing system.”

  • Jerry Pault:

    “I had tons of photos everywhere and no clue how to manage them on my own. I could not afford to hire someone to do this for me, so I took the DIY class with Jordan and am really glad that I did! Jordan’s process was easy to follow and clearly explained what to do and how to do it. Jordan saved me a ton of computer space since she found almost 70,000 duplicate photos! Strongly recommend; great course, great value!”

  • Mike Lavelle:

    “I strongly recommend the SurroundUs Services DIY Digital Photo Organizing Workshop. Jordan is an expert in all things digital photo organizing and was helpful in decoding the various software solutions currently available.”
