I have a custom document library that "should only allow one user" to upload/Edit documents but let everyone else to download/View it.

At the moment I got two events that are checking who is uploading documents but I don't think its the best way of doing it.

The best way is to adjust permissions on the document library level. Assign "Contribute" level to that particular user and "Read" to others.
