Mark has lived at Tierra Nueva cohousing for the past four years. His contributions here include taking care of the plants in the Common House, dealing with trash bins, work days, and occasionally assisting with meals.
When asked which animal he identifies with, he said, “I closely associate myself with the lounge lizard which is found in dark places where blues music and/or jazz is played.”
Fun Fact: Mark puts banana and peanut butter in his iced lattes.
