Here is a little bit about each of the team members in their own words!



Hi. I'm Shawn

"I was born in Poughkeepsie NY and raised in Malden NY. I am 22 years old. I went to Cahill Raguritie and Mt Marion then transferred to Myer in 5th grade. I then started 6th grade at Bailey middle school and finished my middle school years at Miller middle school and finished my high school years at Kingston high school in the class of 2017. My hobbies include watching TV movies, reading, drawing, playing video games and talking and hanging out with friends and family. I am the Cannabis Colorado Cowboy -- I recently went on a epic trip with Bradford Beckerman to Colorado to see the farm where the hemp begins for the products I help make for my boss Bradford and his company Hennepens."

Hi. I'm Ivar

"I like martial arts and sailing, although I have not been able to do them much lately. I really want to continue studying martial arts. I am also working on getting my drivers permit. In the past I was able to participate in special Olympics, in softball and bowling.

I have an apartment in the center of my town, and I enjoy getting out in the community and having friends. My family lives nearby and I get to spend  time with my Dad.

I have a lot of work experience at places like McDonalds ,and doing  cleaning, and security. My job at Hennepen's is the best by far. I am part of a team here and they value my work. I get to go out on sales calls, as well as doing shipping and receiving. Sometimes I help out with packaging if I am needed for that."
