Small team. Big Ideas.

We’re a group of creators — designers, photographers, audio editors, musicians — who, truth be told, probably have no business engineering software.

But every one of our team members has lived the pain of trying to create while our ideas and assets are tied up in the chaos of media disorganization. Every one of us has had that, Where is that !@#$ file? I know it’s here somewhere… moment.

 Born out of our collaboration with the Bob Dylan Music Company and its decades-long collection of Dylan’s life and work, our small and nimble Starchive team has spent years helping some of the most iconic creative brands solve their media challenges.

Now we’ve taken that experience and reimagined it as a platform the everyday creator can use.

Richard Averitt

CEO

A skilled storyteller with a servant leadership ethos, Richard has spent 25 years building and leading teams that turn vision into reality and flood the market with big ideas. Starchive represents the biggest vision yet — unleashing the creative potential of every business by giving them total control over their media assets.

Peter Agelasto

Founder

Peter is the charismatic inventor-visionary behind the scribbled-napkin idea that ultimately became Starchive. His relentless passion and innovation as an advocate for connecting media and metadata inspires everything we do and pushes Starchive to the very edges of media evolution.

Megan Knutson

VP, Customer Success

Megan was a Nashville music industry mover and shaker when she was introduced to Starchive. Now Megan uses her planning, project management, production, and creative administration skills to lead Starchive’s Customer Success team — making sure our clients have an amazing experience as they build and use their own Starchives.

Corrie Commisso

VP, Marketing & Engagement

Corrie is Starchive’s Swiss Army Knife. A creative director and marketing strategist with decades of experince, she also happens to be an MLIS-toting digital archivist. On any given day, she might be creating content, collaborating on product development, or traveling to some remote corner of the world to help others learn how to preserve their digital media.

Stephen Tuso

Lead Engineer

What started as an internship while Stephen was a student at Virginia Tech turned into a win for Starchive when he agreed to join our development team full-time. When he’s not in coding mode or sharing his expertise with the open-source software community, you might find him in the great outdoors taking pictures or playing some pickup basketball.

Susanna Klosko

Implementation Specialist

Susanna connects our customer success and engineering teams. With a Ph.D. in the Humanities, a passion for digital archives, and fluent coding skills, we’re fortunate to have a team member who can speak both languages and enable us to anticipate and respond quickly to our many clients.

Kelly Bower

Admin

Kelly is “the glue” of our organization. The business savvy she’s collected across the business world holds our team together on a daily basis. Kelly makes sure that our business delivers on time, in budget, and that our team has the tools they need to keep up with Starchive’s lightning-fast pace.
