Hello. My name is Mark, I’m a professional, full time firefighter in North Carolina. Days I'm not at the fire house I'm lucky to be able to spend time taking care of my daughter. In my short amount of free time, I like to be creative using my artistic skills in Printmaking and leather work. My other hobbies include beekeeping and brewing mead & beer. To keep in shape, I focus on eating healthy and leading an active lifestyle running, cycling, swimming, hiking and white water rafting.
"I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a Fireman. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but those who know the work which a Fireman has to do believe his is a noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save... lives. Under the impulse of such thoughts the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of daring, even of supreme sacrifice.”
