Hey, I'm Mark.
I asked a few of my female friends how they would describe me, and they basically said: “You're crazy energetic and an adorable dork.”
I guess I'm energetic? I hate sitting still. I've been playing soccer for over 20 years, and regularly try to play in pickup games or rec leagues. I also switch between running and lifting weights - generally trying to keep in shape.
Now, ladies, if you're picturing an epic meathead, I'm about to disappoint you: I AM a huge nerd. I work for an amazing software company, and it's awesome. Normally, I spend my time building computer applications. I also get to shoot promotional or educational videos and run seminars. I've given several presentations in front of 200-300 people, which I consider to be the most fun.
I love to cook. I'm mainly vegetarian (I eat meat, just rarely). It's a bit of a hobby of mine to create new recipes. Obviously, I love going out and having dinner, specifically at places I've never been.
As for music, I'm a classic rock/alternative kind of guy. Since I grew up as a computer nerd, I have a soft spot for dance/techno/electro/etc. I will also dance my pants off, which apparently adds to my adorable dorkiness?
And lastly; very rarely am I clean shaven, I keep the 5 o'clock shadow around most of the year. The beard comes and goes depending on the season and how much time I'm spending outside in the winter.
