Get to Know Smokin Js – Sean Wilkening
At Smokin Js we like to say “We are Real People offering Real Quality Products at a Real Value.”. We get caught up constantly working on the Quality and the Value, and we forget to tell you about the People behind the logo. This blog is part of a series that will feature Smokin Js employees. No person was injured in the writing of this blog.
Sean Wilkening came to Smokin Js in April of 2013. Big hair and a big smile make Sean one of the most inviting and friendly people on the Smokin Js crew. Warmth of personality and depth of intelligence quickly drove Sean to a management position. Try to catch him if you can! Sean spends a lot of time on I5 traveling to all the Washington Smokin Js locations supervising the crew and making the stores look their best.
Sean’s favorite thing about working at Smokin Js is educating customers and showing off our products. “Getting to see a person’s eyes light up when I show them new glass or a crazy gadget that will improve their smoking experience,” Sean said about his favorite thing on the job. His favorite glass piece is a dichroic twist spoon made by K Mack, but his favorite glass blower is Scott Sherrell. “Not only is he a master of the wrap and rake, but I love that he is always trying something new.”
When he isn’t slinging glass, helping customers, or training employees, Sean enjoys a quiet life with his girlfriend Kelsea. They have two crazy cats named Hobbes and Hands. The ideal night for Sean is enjoying a beer, a bowl, and cooking for his favorite lady.
