The story line revolves around Jude, a young boy…

Interview Session with Ezekiel

Interview Session with Ezekiel

Tell us about yourself and your art. Ezekiel – My name is Ezekiel. I live in Los Angeles, California. I am a full time husband and father. I like to talk about those things first because I believe God has given me that as my primary means of stewardship.

There are different things that people enjoy about it.…
