Remote Support

Don’t just take our word for it…

Usually our clients describe us better than we do. They accomplish more with more panache than most computer users do. We love hearing about their successes and when they thank us back for our part in them, we glow.

If you’d like to add your own thoughts, please do so with the comments form at the bottom. If you have a google account (and who doesn’t?) add your review here too… and if you use Yelp, you could review us there!

Here are a few things our clients have to say…

“As far as Mac IT is concerned, Justin Bradshaw lives up to the letter and spirit of the word cognoscenti
Michael York, actor, director

“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.
Randi Picarelli, Hard Cards

“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. If there was trouble, I always had a handy geek type lurking about to help me solve my online woes. Like all things in life….that phase is over rover. While not anywhere near as adept as some of my fellow compatriots, I’m now pretty skilled at solving most problems when my laptop acts up. Yet, there are still events that stump me and for that, I’ve learned to call in the experts.
“Recently, I was pitching a show and desperately needed some help with a graphics presentation. We were using the new Keynote program that Apple has released to compete with Powerpoint. 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 business. He used to work at Apple in the Grove where he hooked up with Ben Lam, and they formed Mac cognoscenti, a consulting business. They come to you and if you’re a Mac user… it’s a beautiful thing!
Tammara, via Digital Life Coaching on

“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.
Rebecca Harrell, The Fuel Film

“My friend thinks your the tops!!! 🙂 Oh my goodness, how much do I adore recommending you because everyone always calls ME to thank ME!! 🙂
Amy Peterson, Amy’s Blankies

“You da man.”
Brad Furman, Movie Director

“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. June 19, 2010

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!” April 6, 2010

Kent McCallister, Genius Admin, Apple
worked with Justin at MacCognoscenti

“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.” March 3, 2010

“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.” March 2, 2010
