John Masellis
Hometown?
I was born in Miami, Florida but currently live in Concord, NH.
What was your first memory of using computers?
I first used an Apple II when in second grade. We bought our first home PC and paired it with dial-up internet. I want to say the machine had Windows 95 installed too. Cutting edge back in the day!
When you’re not found in front of a computer you are…
Watching sports mostly or reading a good book!
What was the last great book you read?
I can’t put my finger on one specific book (there are too many great ones out there!). For a book series, however, I would say The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan is one of my favorites.
What is something unique about you?
I served in the United States Army and had the privilege of traveling all over the country for various missions and training cycles.
What would you do if you had an extra 5 hours every week?
I would most likely spend those extra hours working on various personal projects that I thoroughly enjoy but just can never seem to find the time for.
If you could go anywhere for an entire month, where would it be and what would you do (or why would you do it)?
If I could go anywhere for a month I would have to go to Europe. I would love to take my time to explore each of the diverse countries and visit all the old castles that are still standing, as well as the historical sites from World War Two. I’m a huge history buff – especially when it comes to military history – so seeing historical battlefields, forts, and other monumental sites would be amazing for me.
Favorite sports teams?
For basketball, I’d have to say the Boston Celtics. My favorite soccer (football) team is Barcelona but followed closely by Liverpool.
