Mark values integrity, honesty, and responsibility. Because of his uncharacteristically strong sense of a “can-do” attitude and the positivity that follows it, he often finds himself surrounded by individuals with whom he can share life and encourage. Through his desire to see others reach their full potential, he can give of himself and enable others to recognize their strengths. His knack for creativity, coupled with his willingness to adventuring, has often lead him onto the path less traveled – an invaluable attribute learned through countless hours of gaming! Mark recognizes the value in constantly challenging himself in that it is a necessity to transcend traditional thinking patterns and understand both modern and future technologies.
Having lived all over South Africa, Mark has had a front-row seat growing up in a forever-changing South African culture and environment. With each new school, Mark overcame a different obstacle, and it molded him into someone that others could more comfortably approach. He was recognized for his skill in sports as well as for being a beacon of friendship to many
His uniquely crafted skill set enabled him to thrive in the industries of hospitality, customer service, and graphic design. Mark has had three years of experience in the creativity-driven environment of graphic design and eight years in hospitality. He had his humble start as a waiter and then moved on to becoming a mixologist after finally achieving the general manager position during his career.
Mark has an avid interest in the latest food fads (a Foodie for life), and his ability to cook a mouth-watering meal is rarely rivaled! He also has an innate ability to work with and understand technology. He always was the go-to person in the family for anything IT-related or those who find themselves technologically challenged.
