I’m Mark, if you couldn’t tell from this website. I’m a 5’9″ Gemini seeking the meaning of life. Just kidding–we all know the meaning of life already.

I enjoy spontaneous dance parties, competitive [insert any random/obscure activity here], and Gmail.

Upon recently graduating, I’ve geeked out at Code for America, taught ESL in Malaysia and Hong Kong, and gallivanted across Southeast Asia, all for your blog-reading pleasure. I’m currently working at Coursera to provide education on a massive scale to those who desperately seek it.

This blog is a hodgepodge of thoughts. It has ADD as well as periods of sporadic narcolepsy. It’s a lazy excuse to “keep in touch” with folks in a very one-sided manner (no, I get too much fanmail to read comments), so please do drop a message via any of the redundantly abundant social media services to the right. Or come visit in person!
