My self-summary
Well....umm...my name is Mark. I am about 6'2", 300 lbs. Yup....big boy. My passions are video games, art, and music. Within art my specialties are drawing and painting...and within music drumming and playing guitar. I'm a Fine Arts and Music major...duh. I am a student of Iowa State University (although currently on Hiatus...explanation below).

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. YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH BUDDAAAAAAAAY!!!
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 aggressively.

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.

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...
The two of us
