Justin Shelley
CEO

I grew up in the country and had a very active childhood. I learned to ride a motorcycle at 5, got bucked off a horse at 6, and learned to drive our 1946 Jeep sitting on my father’s lap because I was too small to touch the pedals. At 11 years old I helped dig a basement out from under the home we lived in with shovels, picks and wheelbarrows. And I don’t mean I “helped” by asking questions. I mean I moved a LOT of dirt with my bare hands.At 12 I bought, built, flew, and crashed my first radio-controlled airplane. I bought it with money I earned myself, and it was NOT a cheap toy. That was a crushing experience. But it didn’t stop me. I loved airplanes from a very early age and continued flying R/C models for many years.I played the piano quite well as a teenager, played soccer, ran track (sprints), played the saxophone in marching band, and did my best to get into trouble as any responsible teenager would do.Today, when I’m not running my business, I’m running on my treadmill training for my next marathon. Or riding my Harley Davidson Ultra Limited. Or working on my son’s 1986 Firebird. Or flying drones with my other son. Or hanging out with my wife, my oldest daughter and her boyfriend. We love to just relax, drink a glass of wine, watch a movie, or just talk.I attribute much of my love for technology and business to my father. But more importantly, my father taught me the value of hard work and determination. If my dad wanted something done, he could do it. He remodeled and added onto the homes we lived in, and even built a couple from the ground up. I learned by example that if I wanted something badly enough, and wasn’t afraid to get my hands dirty, I could have it.When I was around 12 years old, my father brought home our first computer. The Apple IIe. I was in love! While my siblings and friends played video games, I learned to write code. Programming was the most amazing adventure for me. I spent hours learning to speak the language of this new machine that was quickly becoming a huge part of my life.My first computer-related job was installing Ethernet cable it the University of Nevada Reno where I was studying Computer Science. I climbed through crawl spaces and attics with cable tied to my belt, squeezing through spaces so tight that I almost got stuck more than once. I’m not claustrophobic, but this nearly converted me. I eventually graduated to more technical jobs as I worked for two local computer shops. I was fired from the first job, largely because I wasn’t qualified and was in over my head. The second job was a better fit and I thrived. But I hated the fact that I was getting paid $8/hour while being billed out at $85. Something had to change. And Master Computing was born. I officially filed the paperwork in November of 1997.Success is never a straight line and my journey has been rocky at times. There have even been a couple detours. For a few years I took a hiatus into the world of aviation and became an air-ambulance pilot flying Cessna 421s. But soon enough the siren song of technology drew me back in. Version 2 of Master Computing was born in 2010 and I couldn’t be happier!
