With a documentary on a homeless man and a series of webisodes, Orange County activist hopes to spark social change – Orange County Register

Life has been good to Philip Romero.

He calls his 1980s childhood in Southern California “classic middle class.” His father, who worked in the region’s aerospace industry, settled his family in Santa Ana, where Romero was born. They were among the first Latino homeowners in a modest neighborhood where the lawns remain green and basketball hoops dot driveways to this day.

The family later moved to Anaheim, where Romero’s parents still live.

Romero had the further good fortune of a college education after graduating Katella High, earning a business degree in economics from Cal State Fullerton that led to a successful career in commercial real estate and residential properties.

At 51, he lives comfortably with his wife and children in Coto de Caza.

Romero’s personal brand of philanthropy is a mix of art and activism: Through a music and documentary-focused effort called The ISHues Project, he hopes to inspire others to make a difference, however small and for however long it takes to have an impact.
