Oliver Hill

Oliver Hill is a Spanish American journalist based in New York City. He has worked as a music video editor, ornithologist, and financial writer. He attended Northfield Mount Hermon School in Massachusetts before receiving a bachelor of science degree from Cornell University. Frequent trips to Spain and other destinations throughout his youth gave Oliver a global perspective on life and an unquenchable thirst for experiencing new places and cultures.

Oliver, a dedicated reggae fan from a young age, began his lasting relationship with Jamaica like many American youths, through the island’s music. Hanging with fellow students of Jamaican heritage in high school ultimately led Oliver to visit the island, where he established a recording studio in a Kingston suburb in partnership with a local artist. Later a master’s program in journalism at Columbia University took Oliver back to Jamaica with a film crew to shoot Coping with Babylon, a chronicle of contemporary Rastafarian philosophy.
