Let’s get to know JD
- First of all, the websites I check most often are iTunes or Guitar tabs. Music is a passion of mine. I’m always listening, always learning.
- Also, I love soccer. My father is from Argentina and my mother is from El Salvador. I grew up watching Argentinean soccer. I get really worked up watching soccer. It’s in my blood.
- But, I’m terrified of missing my call time. I’ll check my alarm several times before I fall asleep.
- Finally, The most embarrassing song on my iPod is Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me.” Wow, I should probably delete that.
Ezekiel ‘EZ’ Reyes is the main protagonist of Mayans MC, a spinoff of the FX original series Sons of Anarchy.
Furthermore, we will see more of him in this role as EZ. Maybe, he will be on the show all season! Certainly, this show is a HIT!
