Clients Who Inspire: The Big Move, El Cosmico and Marfa, TX
When Sean and I first met over a haircut in San Francisco a few years back, we spoke of the desire to travel to far off places. The once fantasy of leaving our conventional life of the 9-5 behind has since become a perfect and sometimes not so perfect reality. Last summer while looking through photos of far off places Sean had traveled through, I stumbled upon photos of a little hotel called El Cosmico in Marfa, TX. Sean was the first person to introduce me to Marfa and El Cosmico. I will forever give him credit for introducing me to the place I now work and call home.
While continuing on his own journey to a new life in NYC, Sean came to pay Marfa, El Cosmico, and myself a visit. This was one of the coolest moments I have experienced. When you live a life on the move, staying in touch if never easy; but if you do so, the rewards can be priceless. Throw in an impromptu drive over the border to Mexico with a music import from Argentina and you have memories that will last a lifetime.
