Telecom in Ten | Ten Questions | John Fazio | Marketing Manager

About Us | By Northland Communications Team

01. How long have you been working at Northland and what is your favorite part of your job?

I’ve been working at Northland Communications for approximately seven months. My favorite part of the job is that we get to work with so many different projects and can collaborate with pretty much every department. It makes each day distinct.

02. What is your favorite sports team?

I am a diehard sports fan and suffer from years of anguish with the Syracuse Orange, Buffalo Bills, and the NY Knicks. I spend much of the fall and winter chasing these teams all over the place and follow sports a bit too passionately.

03. What is your favorite memory at the Carrier Dome?

So many! The entire 2002-2003 basketball season just felt different and watching Carmelo was surreal. The first Duke game. The two-point conversion against West Virginia to go 11-0 in 1987. Setting the record (the first time) against Villanova in 2010. Donovan McNabb versus Virginia Tech with the tight-end throwback on the buzzer. Them crushing Miami 66-7 during McNabb’s senior night game. Should I continue?!?!

04. What are your favorite hobbies?

Typically, I’m either found on the golf course, on or near the water, visiting breweries, listening to live music, or spending time with friends & family. I love day-tripping and finding different little spots to visit.

05. What is your favorite holiday?

As Italian, Christmas Eve. Not only is seafood is my favorite, but all the different dishes and fish my Mom makes for dinner are just insanely delicious.

06. Do you have any pets?

I am a big-time dog lover as my rescue, Piper, joined me about two years ago. She is the perfect balance of insane and lazy. She just has a love for adventures and chasing squirrels.

07. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

You’re assuming I don’t have one.

08. What is your favorite song, and have you ever heard it live?

I have like four, so I’m cheating. All-time? “Stand by Me.” Obviously multiple covers, but too young to have seen it live. “Everlong” by Foo Fighters, and yes. “Creep” by Radiohead, and yes. “Free” and then goes into “Into the Mystic” combined by the Zac Brown Band, and yes.

09. If you had a personal tagline, what would it be?

Definitely, maybe.

10. Describe your perfect day.

Sunny day. Upper-70’s. Golf course. Lunch. Boat. Grill. Fire. Repeat.
