Well....umm...my name is Mark. I am about 6'2", 300 lbs. Yup....big
boy. My passions are video games
, and music
Within art my specialties are drawing
within music drumming
and playing guitar
. I'm a Fine
major...duh. I am a student of Iowa State
University (although currently on Hiatus...explanation
Uhhh...I tend to be the quietest person in any crowd. I am HUGE fan
of thinking inwardly...and I'm ALWAYS thinking...usually
abstractly. I speak a lot through the faces I make, my music, art,
or the way I behave...rather than with words.
What else....oh yeah! I LOVE almost all things Asian (mainly
Oriental). The art, martial arts, architecture, food, women,
languages, histories, philosophies....everything. And of course, my
idol (or...one of) is Bruce Lee. Did a research paper on him, as a
matter of fact (the other RP was on video games, LOL).
Oh yeah, I like computers, math, physics, psychology, metaphysics,
philosophy, and powerlifting too. So...basically...I'm a nerdy,
artistic, meathead. Oh...and I'm a metalhead \m/ !!! Pretty odd for
a man of my...*ahem*...VALUE (art term for lightness/darkness LOL)
to be a metalhead? Well yeah it prolly is...but I really don't give
a fuck. As long as I'm being ME...then I'm pleased. And this
"gangsta" rap bull shit is so...UGH!!! Anyway...talk to
me...because I rock and you love me!
I am honest, artsy, and intellectual
What I’m doing with my life
Right NOW now I am taking a break from school to work, practice my
passions (art and music), and work on ME...gotta get in touch with
my inner "dude". But as soon as I feel it's necessary I will be
going back to Iowa State University and finish my degree in Fine
Arts and Music. After that I would like to be able to continue on
at more specialized schools and get two Master's degrees...one in
an area of art and one in percussion.
I want to be...well...a few things actually LOL. I'm pretty set on
being a professional artist (more specifically video game art and
design is my highest goal) and drummer...and I need those two
things in my life. I'm not caught up in the details of how I will
make that work just yet...all I know is that I fucking love art and
I fucking love music......it's my life and that's that.
I’m really good at
I'm a professional gamer (mainly fighting games). And I'm (as
stated above) an artist and musician. And pretty much anything that
has to do with The Arts and creativity (I'm into theatre as well) I
learn very quickly. I can pick up on pretty much anything quickly
but creative endeavors are the easiest to learn for me.
I said it before and I'll say it again...The Arts are my life.
Without emotion, feeling, thought, and reflection...life would be
stupid. I'm also fairly strong and enjoy powerlifting. I noticed at
a young age that I'm good at it and I gain strength quickly. Not
like that means anything but it's something I'm good at LOL.
The first things people usually notice about me
Large, tall, baby-faced (I guess), black...LOL...IDK. If you mean
physical then that's about it. In terms of personality I am very
kind, caring, quiet/soft spoken, shy, patient, and intellectual.
But at the same time...I stand up for what I believe in...very
I get especially pissed off when my words are twisted and people
try and see me as someone I'm not. I'm a gentle giant but if one
gives me a reason to fight (verbally or physically)...they will
most surely regret it. I'm very open-minded and when I come across
ignorant and close-minded people..I shut them down quickly.

On a typical Friday night I am
On my computer, drawing, drumming, shredding, playing games, or
hanging out with close friends, listening to music...usually
switches from activity to activity...my mind is always racing and I
think I might have a short attention span LOL......squirrel!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ummmm....I'm pretty weird...is that the word? IDK whatever I'm just
me...and if that is strange then so be it. And yes...I'm even more
interesting than this profile lets you know about *gasp*. The inner
machinations of my mind are an enigma...
You should message me if
You are interested in a MAN that isn't looking to get into your
pants but is looking for an actual relationship. If you are
interested in a man that respects women immensely and thinks they
deserve better than what they are generally getting. If you are
interested in a man that is sensitive and very kind but is also
tough and isn't going to be pushed around. And if you are
interested in a generally unique, intelligent, talented and
creative individual. Essentially...message me if you are interested
in what a MAN really should be...because you deserve better...
