Héctor worked as a systems architect for four years in the financial technology industry before turning to mobile app development. Héctor is most at ease in front of an Xcode window, but he is also a skilled Java developer with a new-found love for Ruby. His favorite kind of app requires a hefty backend behind it.
Héctor has been actively promoting startups, teaming up with a group of entrepreneurs to launch the Startups of Puerto Rico initiative which helped organize Barcamps, Startup Weekends, and the first TEDx conference to be held in Puerto Rico.
Héctor graduated from the University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez with a B.S. in Computer Engineering. He is an Engineer-in-Training and member of the San Juan Chapter and Instituto de Ingenieros de Computadora of the Colegio of Ingenieros y Agrimensores de Puerto Rico.
