We had the good fortune of connecting with EZ Heath and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi EZ, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My father always instilled in me that I should work for myself & not to work for no one else. He worked 2 jobs at a time my whole life while he volunteered as a basketball coach and helped other people start their own companies often for little to no reward. It’s always stuck with me and really built my mentality towards business. Our time is our most valuable asset and we can’t get that back. We spend most of our lives leasing our time to someone else.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a visual artist, I specialize in photography, videography, graphic design and just recently I’ve began to learn web design. I grew up loving comic books and film and it has really help develop my vision as an artist. I love lighting and colors schemes, but most importantly living in the moment. One of the most important things about photography is capturing the moment and immortalizing it. You began to understand that life is art and each second is it’s own picture or movie. Nothing has been easy about this path, it’s been a labor of love to say the least. But I enjoy the challenges of it, and with each challenge I overcome the better I get as an artist and the more confident I become. I’ve become more resilient and more patient. I understand that the next opportunity is always on the horizon. My brand represents using your mind to make anything possible

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My favorite part of Dallas has always been Deep Ellum. There’s everything there, food, music, art, and just the energy you feel in the environment is vibrant. There are plenty of places to eat with upper deck patios, DJ’s and beautiful people. In the daytime the Dallas museum of Art and the Perot Museum across the street are 2 most do visits. They are both in walking distance from Klyde Warren park which is a large park downtown built on top of a freeway. During lunch hours it’s filled with food trucks and they even do yoga classes there lol. Also you can head to Oak Cliff and visit the Bishop Arts district, some of the best food is there and it’s filled with history and culture.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate this to my oder Sister Brandy, she has always been there for me and my mom. 1 of my biggest inspirations is paying her back.
