One Hispanic is an all around creative who is currently working with recording artist Khalid as his photographer and videographer traveling all over the world capturing timeless moments with him. If you bump into him at a show or somewhere on the streets you might see him rocking his clothing brand, GRIME.

Raised in Queens, New York both his grandmother and grandfather positively influenced him as child and taught him the importance of family. Going to boarding school outside of Philly gave him a taste of photography and it also was where he formed his relationship with hip hop duo Moosh & Twist. With 2 years of college under his belt at Saint John’s University he left for a year to jump on tour and never went back.

His relationship with Khalid, the 20 years young artist behind quadruple platinum record Location, started from an opportunity to shoot photos of him at a show at SOB’s in New York City. More opportunities to work with him came with time and eventually he took on the role of being his full-time photographer and videographer. One thing One Hispanic has learned since working with him is to always show love to the people that support you.

In this episode One Hispanic discusses his favorite childhood memory was the blackout in New York City, the best piece of advice he has ever recieved is to never give up, being grateful for the love and support from his family, inspiring people to become better version of themselves and why growth really inspires him.
