Sean McKenna

Sean McKenna I'm a early thirties father of two. I was formerly a master guild level technician for a major luxury manufacture. I grew tired of the politics and bored with the lack of challenges in my daily work. When our second child was born we quickly decided that a change was needed. I quit my job and haven't looked back. I grow most of our veggies, bake all our break and make most of our meals.
