Big Sur Road Trip

It was a great day for a top-down photo road trip to Big Sur. (It's amazing how much you can pack into a day when you're up at 3:15…) Ellie and I visited CA for the first time in 1978, for our honeymoon, and fell in love with this stretch of coastline. Play the "Point Sur" […]

Who Goes There?

I've built this site around the idea that the conventional divisions between professional and personal life are artificial. They don't reflect the way we live, work, and play today. I don't shut down my professional responsibilities (with rare exception) on evenings, weekends, or holidays. Our competitive environment doesn't permit that, and I'd get bored. Further, it occurs to me that if you are interested in doing business with me in some way you should be interested in Rich Bravman, the person. So, whether you're an entrepreneur looking for ideas on how to put your ideas to work, an investor looking for an experienced advisor or board member, a friend, colleague, or simply someone curious about what a fellow human thinks... Welcome! Warning: eccentricity lies ahead in these pages.
