About Me

I'm a Graphic/Web Designer with Front-End developer skills living in Los Angeles, CA

I design and build front-end apps for web and email.

I am not a nerd, but I can still geek out with you on the topics of web development, design, drawing, watching movies, cars, Star Wars or whatever else you would like to pick my brain about.

Every website I build, every email I design, is a new challenge to design something unique and usable. Paying attention to the details what matter to me, every pixel matters. "Because the devil is in the details". I also believe in open web standards and develop with the latest web technologies.

I am very passionate about DIY home projects. From installing and painting a pocket door to doing wood work, I love working around the house. I had the pleasure on doing all the baseboard and crown molding in my house which can be challenge. But I find taking my time tends to work best for me; after all I am not in a race to get it done.

I also love cars! I am car guy through and through. Old cars, news cars, if it has four wheels and its a classic, I am in!

What people are saying

The consummate professional

Hector is the consummate professional - the work he produced was of the highest quality at all times. He also worked very quickly without sacrificing that quality. I recall a very high profile presentation that I needed help with - of course, the deadline was not flexible. Hector gave me what I needed before the end of that day, WITH a couple of options and an explanation of his methods. He also provided great mentorship and feedback to the other designers on his team. It was a pleasure working with him!.

A pleasure to work with and office personality

I had the pleasure of working with Hector at Experian. Though we worked in different capacities, Hector delivered great work and on schedule (if not ahead of schedule). On top of that, Hector was a great colleague and office personality. We take a certain pride in our office culture and Hector was a big contributor to a positive work environment.

Very detail oriented and a great communicator

Hector is very detail oriented and a great communicator. He delivers excellent work and results with an upbeat and positive attitude. His infectious personality made him so enjoyable to work with. I hope to have the chance to work with him again. He truly is an asset to any company!

Respectable and cordial leader with a keen eye for detail

Hector is a respectable and cordial leader who not only has a keen eye for detail, but also a great work ethic. No matter how late it got, he always stayed to make sure we delivered a perfect product on time. The quality of Hector's work is one that should be matched by every employee. He is a pro-active team player, and works well with everyone (and I mean everyone)! If I ever have the chance to work with Hector again, I would jump at the opportunity.

Every employee should mimic his dedication

Hector is a team oriented and efficient worker at any workplace. I've had the pleasure to work with him in and outside of work tackling side projects big and small. His dedication has shown to be at a level where every employee should mimic. Regarding his artwork, his creativity, ideas and passion are displayed beautifully through his designs which stands out to be impeccable and true to what is directed. I highly recommend Hector to any employer considering him.

He is talented and has shown exemplary initiative in creating a wide variety of design

I'm thankful that the Marketing Dept and Design department work close together, because it's given me the opportunity to work with Hector on various projects from corporate marketing material to product marketing initiatives, and more. He is talented, has shown exemplary initiative in creating a wide variety of design artwork, thorough, and always executes his tasks quickly and efficiently. I know that I can always count on him to deliver - even when something urgent arises - and best of all he does it with a smile. With such a great skill set - personality and productivity. Hector is a true asset to any team.
