Who is Moses Hacmon?
He presents himself as an artist on his social media profiles, however, Moses Hacmon is also a well-educated and multi-talented person. Although he came into the limelight after it was revealed that he’s engaged to YouTube star Trisha Paytas, in the artistic communities, Moses has established a name for himself as a photographer behind the project called ‘Faces of Water’.
If you want to know more interesting facts about his life and career, let us introduce you to Moshe Shiko Hacmon, better known by his nickname, Moses.
Early life, family, and education
Born on 29 October 1977 under the zodiac sign of Scorpio, Moses hails from Tel Aviv, Israel, and comes from a family of Mizrahi Jewish (Turkish-Jewish and Libyan-Jewish) descent. There is no information about his parents, but what we do know is that he has a sister, Hila, who is also an artist. She’s married to Ethan Klein, and the two are co-creators of the YouTube channel “h3h3Productions”, and the clothing brand called Teddy Fresh.
Moses once spoke about his childhood, saying that from an early age he had an interest in art and nature. He studied fine art and cinematography at the Avni Institute of Art and Design, in Tel Aviv. This brought him to study architecture, and he enrolled at Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, in Haifa, Israel.
In 2002, Moses moved to the US and enrolled at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture with the highest honors in 2006 – Moses received the American Institute of Architecture (AIA) Medallion.
Faces of Water
Moses’ first project was released in 2013. His method of photography is taking photos of different movements of water; it presents different shapes and ‘creatures’. According to Moses, no other elements cycles through nature the way water does.
On his YouTube channel entitled “Channel Water”, you can see his work and also listen to his lectures. This channel was launched in April 2013, and it’s today subscribed to by nearly 25,000 people, and all of his videos combined have gained more than 750,000 views.
Love life and relationships
Before he met Trisha Paytas, Moses was married twice. His first wife was Deborah Cluff, about whom nothing is known, except that they were in marriage from 2007 until 2009 when she filed for divorce.
In 2017, Moses married Elizabeth Marley, his fellow from the Southern California Institute of Architecture, but this marriage came to the end in 2019.
Marriage with Trisha Paytas
Moses met Trisha Paytas on a dating show hosted by Moses’ sister, Hila. Because of the Coronavirus pandemic lockdown, the show was put on hold, however, Trisha and Moses broke the rules of the show and began hanging out behind Hila’s back.
The two spent time together during the lockdown, and to show how devoted she is to Moses, Trisha began learning about Jewish culture, which she shared with her Twitter followers in April 2020. It seems that Hila wasn’t approving of Moses’ relationship with Trisha, and on 14 April 2020, Trisha uploaded a video “h3 ruined my relationship” on her YouTube channel in which she was blaming Hila and her husband for her and Moses’ split.
In the following days, Trisha uploaded videos onto her YouTube channel and TikTok featuring her and Moses, and in July 2020, she accused him of speaking with another woman. Not just Hila, but also Trisha’s followers were confused with her and Moses’ relationship.
In September 2020, Trisha and Ethan Klein, Hila’s husband, started a podcast together, entitled “Frenemies”, and one of the first questions Ethan asked Trisha was why she is dating Moses. She answered that it all started as a joke, but that they are now officially together.
On 25 December 2020, Trisha announced that Moses and she were engaged – he proposed to her at the Imperial Sand Dunes, California, at the moment that they were dressed as Princess Jasmine and Aladdin.
The couple married on 11 December 2021, and in February 2022, Trisha announced that she was pregnant, giving birth to their daughter, Malibu Barbie Paytas-Hacmon, on 14 September 2022.
Briefly about his wife
Trisha Paytas was born on 8 May 1988, which makes her aged 34; she hails from Riverside, California where she spent most of her childhood until her parents divorced. She moved to Illinois with her brother and mother, who later remarried and gave birth to Trisha’s half-sister.
When Trisha was 15, she returned to her father in California, and began attending a Catholic online school program, however, after a year she went back to her mother’s home in Illinois. There she attended a local high school, but upon matriculating in 2006, she didn’t go to college moving to Los Angeles again to pursue an acting career.

To provide for herself, Trisha worked as an escort and a stripper, and also a lingerie modeler, and it seems that her acting career was not meant to be.
She established her YouTube channel in 2007, which is today entitled “blndsundoll4mj” – she changed titles often – and it’s subscribed to by over five million people, while all of her videos combined have amassed nearly a billion views.
Speaking of her personal life, this controversial YouTube star has suffered from mental health problems, and has been diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder. In 2019, she came out as a trans man, and before that, she self-identified as a ‘chicken nugget’. In April 2021, Trisha reaffirmed as a non-binary person, and since then has used both she/he and they/them pronouns.
Before she met her future husband, Trisha was in relationships with celebrities such as Anthony Michael Hall, Roger Bart, Sean van der Wilt, and Jason Nash. She was romantically linked to Aaron Carter, Phil Varone, Nic Nemeth, and David Lipper.
After Moses and Trisha became engaged, they moved into the house they bought together, for which they paid over $3.5 million. According to sources, Moses has a net worth estimated at over $500,000, while his wife has a reputed net worth of over $10 million.
