  • As a tech savvy individual myself, I am able to accurately analyze the approach of other technicians in the field. Justin’s approach does not start the computer, but rather assessing a person’s interest so as to specifically help them through technology. Whether it’s fixing problems, or building new and creative solutions to improve one’s personal or work productivity, he has a special kind of insight that isn’t often found among the computer literate. Balancing his left and right brain, while also balancing his work and personal life, he is the quintessential guide to helping our computers to become more compatible people with us.

  • I don't exactly know how electricity works....I just know that I need it to. I marvel at the mystery. This is exactly how I feel about Justin. I have no idea how he does what he does. I just know that without him, my business would suffer. While I feel fairly confident in the computer world, Justin is light years ahead of the curve - so I don't have to be.

  • Not only is Justin incredibly knowledgeable regarding programming, networking, and web design to name only a few, he is fast and efficient with his tasks. All of my mac related problems (some very complex) have been solved by Justin very quickly and artfully. I highly recommend him for any type of computer related issues.

  • We have a very busy client here in NYC that has a Los Angeles Office. For several years, we were supporting that sight remotely. They got large enough and complicated enough that we needed someone locally who could handle the site properly for us. That’s when I discovered Justin and MacCognoscenti. I am completely confident in Justin’s ability as a tech as well as his ability to manage the site as professionally as I would if I were there myself. He responds quickly, works diligently and always has the client’s best interest in mind. I’ve been working with him for a couple of years now and I hope to be working with him for many more.
    The Templeton Group
  • What can I say about Justin other then I would never hire anybody else to touch or my maintain any of my business or personal websites. Additionally because of the honesty and integrity Justin has full remote access to both business and personal computers to maintain and upgrade at anytime. I should mention that Justin is amazing at not only troubleshooting, website development, and problem solving which reduces are cost but he knows how to drive traffic to our sites better then anyone else in the business. Just by his understanding and tools we have managed to be at the top of every google search that brings in over 1,000′s of visitors to our site monthly. That is amazing!
    The Josovitz Group
  • Justin is passionate about the Mac. His experience is both broad and deep, and he gives 110% to fix thorny problems. He is always thinking about ways to improve my digital life and is generous in sharing his ideas and solutions. Highly recommended!
    Leading Change Consulting
  • I first used Justin to help design an exciting presentation for a show my company had created. Challenge was, there weren’t any clips just a ton of of still images. Justin took the images and created an exciting sizzle reel that received wonderful feedback every time we pitched it. To this day, I show it to people whenever they say, “what type of sizzle reel should we produce?” I can’t say enough about Justin. He’ll introduce you to technology you don’t even know exists and make it so simple. I’m an FOJ. Fan of Justin. "You da man. You've always been da man and you always will be."

  • Do you hate waiting in line at the Genius Bar at the Apple Store? Call Justin. He combines an encyclopedic knowledge of Apple products with a years-in-the-making passion for all things Apple. In addition, he’s a vastly talented graphic and web designer who also comes factory-equipped with a detailed eye for grammar, usage and language. He’s one of the few people I’ve ever had an animated conversation with about semicolons and smart quotes. Justin distinguishes himself in a saturated field. Hire him.

  • Justin Bradshaw (MacCognoscenti) has been my company’s life saver. He has brought our once archaic technology to the cutting edge. He has created a custom database and customer service log for our company that I did not dream possible, and saved us more money and time than I could imagine. He has always been available to us, and has never let us down in an emergency. He has gone above and beyond what I thought he would or could do, and we have since added him to our monthly payroll.
    Big Picture Ranch
  • I just moved into a new home and was encountering NIGHTMARES with my email accounts. I spent countless hours on the phone with technical support over the course of three days, only to eventually be told, quite simply, to ‘call the Apple store’ or the Geek Squad. I called Justin Bradshaw instead. While this may seem like an exaggeration, Justin’s knowledge and patience saved my life. In a brief and entirely pleasant amount of time, Justin got me up and running; he synched all of my accounts (which I’d been told were lost forever to the ether!) and allowed me to resume work! I am so grateful for his dedication and professionalism. Look no further, he is your man. I would recommend him to anyone.

  • Always responsive, and very patient. Justin proves himself to be an asset to any web-reliant company time and time again. His professionalism and knowledge has proven to be essential to my companies growth and image. Thank you, Justin.

  • As the tile cognoscenti says it all, he has the knowledge and ability to deal with any computer issues than all the IT consultants and MAC geniuses that you may know out there combined. Very personable, too. He not only treats his job as a business, but first and foremost, he puts himself in the client’s shoes and is very compassionate about it which definitely sets him apart from the rest. I so often wish there was another Justin Bradshaw available outside of the Central Coast.
    Beauty Factory Tokyo
  • Justin recently completed a very challenging job by transitioning our entire company from PC to Mac after 10+ years on PC. He performed the job in amazing way. It has been a great experience and the results have been phenomenal. I recommend him very, very, very highly. Please feel free to contact me for more information. Not only does he get great results, have high integrity, he is also creative, personable and extremely expert at what he does.
    Fuse Management
  • As far as Mac IT is concerned, Justin Bradshaw lives up to the letter and spirit of the word "cognoscenti".

  • I had the pleasure of working with Justin from January 2008 to July of 2009 on a political blog and podcast. His technical expertise in social media as well as his engaging personality as a co-host made him a distinct pleasure to work with. Every time I walked into his house, I would get a crash course on the latest digital life innovations and developments. Justin is passionate about all that he does. His aptitude as a digital life coach is made clear through the success of his company. I highly recommend him as a consultant, commentator, and friend.

  • Justin has helped me many times when I’ve had computer issues from set up, to error messages to major castastrophies. He is quite simply a computer genius! I even talked to him before purchasing my newest computer because Justin understands the computer related needs and demands I have as a professional photographer and was able to help me pick out a computer that will continue to meet my needs as I grow my business and as digital technology continues to improve. Thanks Justin! There are many times I just don’t know what I would have done without your help!

  • Justin has done our web design, web site management and i.t. support for the better part of the past decade. We could not be more pleased with the help and service he has provided. A great choice to work with.
    The Shumacher Group
  • Justin is an amazing Mac tech! From the few I've come across in this area, he has the broadest range of skills for a mac-based platform that I've seen. I truly appreciate his ability to help me with my IT problems remotely, and his checklist for items that I can improve upon are valuable. I have recommended him to several of our clients and will continue to do so.

    Justin is a MAC genius, who has helped me learn a great deal about my computer. Aside from being incredibly knowledgeable, Justin teaches you how to do things, rather than just doing them himself and leaving you to your own devices! Very important! I highly recommend Justin.
    Movie Producer: Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood
  • I’ve known Justin for 15 years. He’s a good friend and consistently knowledgeable businessman. Knowing the tools is only half the battle. Justin is able to find creative solutions to problems, and then think beyond the problems to create proactive valuable solutions to avoid issues in the future. His knowledge of and passion for the Mac platform is top-notch, and he continues to learn and grow with the platform. I’d recommend him for any job, big or small.

    My friend thinks you're the tops!!! Oh my goodness, how much do I adore recommending you because everyone always calls ME to thank ME!!

  • Much to my dismay, I’ve gone through several stages of tech phobia in my life. At one time I wouldn’t even attempt to do anything other than turn on my computer. Recently, I was pitching a show and desperately needed some help with a graphics presentation. Enter Justin Bradshaw, who calls himself a ‘digital life coach’ to save the day. He wowed everyone with his ease in making everything flow perfectly and a week later when my computer was dying, he again took care of it. If you’re a Mac user, it’s a beautiful thing!
