Who are you?

My name is Matt McKenna and I am from Austin, Texas, USA. I am a teacher of religious studies and philosophy. I am single and have close ties to my family.

I enjoy trying new restaurants and exploring the Austin music scene with friends and am a huge movie buff.

Where, when and why did you move abroad?
