As a retired physician who finds the challenges of the computer world rather daunting, my wife and I have found the answers to our problems in the person of Frank Bravo. He has saved us on two occasions, making house calls and working out a connection difficulty with Airport Express, and then solving a major HP Printer dysfunction. His availability, communication skills, and general personality have been greatly appreciated. And the price is right!

  • Al and Jean Chamberlain

Frank is my hero! He has helped me many times by either coming to the house or using TeamViewer. I love all the things my computer can do but when it isn't working well I am at a total loss. Frank has a very calm, easy attitude and I really appreciate that. He set up my newest computer and printer, and explained all the changes with a short and simple explanation.
I highly recommend Frank Bravo and hope you will appreciate him as much as I do.

  • Lynda Lumish
  • Palo Alto, CA

I want to recommend Frank Bravo for his fine support with my iMac desktop. I recently bought the apple after using an PC for many years. Frank was very patient and kind with me. I had many questions and he was quickly able to teach me. There was a bit more time left and he gave me some more information which would help me after he left. I plan to use what he taught me for a few months and then ask him to return to continue his fine teaching. Frank is professional, patient, and very knowledgeable.

  • Sally Mellinger
  • San Carlos, CA

Frank is brilliant in understanding the scope of projects and acting to accomplish goals therein. He has a keen eye for details, forecasting progress and adjusting to meet the status quo. His dedication to excellence and on-time quality delivery is evident in every project that he has undertaken. I respect his talent and expect that he will only continue to grow professionally in his field of technology. Frank is extremely competent.

  • Linda Franks
  • Palo Alto, CA

Frank has helped me many times to learn OS X on my Mac, solve problems I am having with my computer, both with hardware and software, and has given me valuable advice on how to best use my Mac. He is a superb teacher, is very easy to work with, really knows computers, and is very reasonable on what he charges. I always feel I have gotten more than my money's worth when paying for his time. I highly recommend that anyone who needs help with their Mac or who needs a good web designer use Frank, and you will be very happy you did.

  • Glenn Cohn

Frank Bravo provided volunteer time to construct a dynamic web-based sign up sheet for the 320+ volunteer slots in the San Carlos Little League Baseball Tournament that I oversee. He also constructed an outstanding algorithm that pulls the results of the tournament games, and immediately ranks teams based on the criteria we provided. Many of the managers and parents of the teams involved in the tournamnet have complimented us for the elegant yet user friendly design that provides real time information in regards to standings and seedings for the playoffs.

  • Paul Sharek
  • San Carlos, CA

Frank is most knowledgeable about his work and is a true professional when it comes to his job. There hasn't been a problem that Frank hasn't been able to fix. He also was in charge of setting up our new sports web site, which is a model for local sports web sites in Northern California, if not the state. Keeping our company's six papers up and running each day is an enormous task, and Frank does this on a daily basis, 24-7, and makes our jobs of getting the news out to the readers that much easier. In addition to that, his IT department is constantly updating and creating, helping us move forward in this ever-changing business.

  • Keith Peters
  • Sports Editor, Palo Alto Weekly

I was delighted to find Frank via Nextdoor.com. We discovered our kids knew each other, and were able to set up a meeting for him to help me with my web site within the week. I felt really comfortable with him right from the start. I was looking for support in DIY web site design, and he brought so much more to the table. I really appreciated his hands-on approach and he is an excellent teacher. He is patient and the solutions he comes up with are flexible, reasonable and efficient. Not only was he helpful in the moment, but now I have his as a resource for future needs. Please contact me if you want a personal referral to Frank Bravo.

  • Patty McLucas
  • Breathing Room Studio, Redwood City, CA

Frank is by far the easiest person I have worked with when it comes to web development.
He built a fantastic website for me from the ground up, creating a customized back-end that allows me to easily update my site with information and images. He delivered everything I had wanted out of a gallery website and even added features I didn't even know I needed!
The end result is a slick and easy to use website design on both desktops and mobile devices. Frank is extremely quick at delivering results, very detail oriented, and a spectacular communicator to those not so savvy. I will continue to use Bravo IT Consulting as my web development guru!

  • Pelham Houchin III

I worked closely with Frank Bravo for more than 15 years, mostly while I was director of Palo Alto Online for nearly a decade and prior to that as a fellow Online Team member at Embarcadero Publishing Company. As our webmaster, Frank was a forward-thinking team member of Palo Alto Online on every level. In addition to strong technical skills, Frank added an astute sense of our marketplace and ability to get things done with attention to the high-level architecture down to the minute details--an unusual and valuable combination. He repeatedly demonstrated a strong commitment to our overall enterprise and responsiveness to our users that made Palo Alto Online not only the first website to grow out of a U.S. newspaper but one of the most successful in every sense: awards, traffic and profitability.

  • Lisa Van Dusen
  • Palo Alto, CA

I had the opportunity of working with Frank from 1993 until 2005 at Embarcadero Publishing Company, during which our company grew from one publication to six along with a fast-growing company-wide online presence. In his position, I had many opportunities for interaction with him and what I can tell you about Frank is that he's a very creative and resourceful IT professional. Having worked for a small company, our resources (especially financial ones) were usually limited, yet whenever we needed some new programming or application, Frank was able to very effectively utilize such resources to the maximum and help develop effective solutions. The part that I truly admired about Frank was his ability to look beyond the immediate uses of any applications that we needed to be developed from scratch. He would encourage me and others to think about other uses and when we couldn't or didn't think of such uses, he would often provide us with ideas we may not have thought of. Considering the limited resources, he has developed a ton of online applications and IT infrastructure for our company and as the company grew in size, he was able to plan and execute for its growth in a smooth and calculated manner. He has a unique ability of deep understanding of problems and developing solutions most appropriate toward solving them. Frank has also self taught himself many of the current applications he works with, a credit to his dedication in being a successful webmaster and IT manager. He has a terrific sense and ability for prioritizing the growing number of tasks related to his responsibilities and is a terrific teacher.

I began my association with Frank Bravo in the fall of 2002. That summer, I had come to the conclusion that in order for my high school alumni association to have any chance of surviving in the 21st Century, it needed to leave memeographed newsletters behind and in turn to embrace the Internet. To accomplish that goal, we needed an interactive, intuitive and innovative website, We needed it almost immediately and we needed a first class design. And given the nature of the undertaking, it's not hard to imagine the challenge we presented to Frank: "Please, oh please design and build a kick ass website for us and try and overlook the budget limitations and please do it in about 3 weeks. We had no design, no real feel for what the website should actually contain and our first year budget was at best lacking. By the time our formal presentation to the board was due to secure funding, Frank was ready with something special and that was echoed by board and the 20-0 approval vote that came forth. I found a link to Frank's company after seeing the website Frank had created for his old high school while surfing the net one late night. Frank called the next day in response to my email and in less than a week, Frank accepted our challenge and our deadline. To say that Frank Bravo delivered on both with a brilliant creative design and a careful attention to every detail and concern. He also came in under budget, and was such a joy to work with, we had to find a way to continue the Frank Bravo connection. Today, we are still enjoying the experience of working with Frank Bravo. As both our Webmaster and our website portal host, Frank consistantly delivers the goods and provides wonderful service and creative advice. It's almost as if HE were an alumnus of our high school the way he takes such care with every single request. A pleasure to speak with, confide in and count on, that just begins to describe Frank Bravo from my perspective.
