Work is a such a big part of life — for many of us, it’s where we spend much of our day. So all this week we’re talking your neighbors about their lives and the the work that they do out here in West Texas.

Carry’s originally from Odessa — but his job with the has taken him all over west texas. Alpine, Lubbock, Marfa, and for the last few years — El Paso.
