About Hector Miranda
Who Am I?
I’m a single Mexican guy called Hector. I was born, raised and educated in Xalapa, a small city in the Southeast of Mexico.
What I do
I’m one of the many people who were lured into studying computers by the prospect of a guaranteed job, oodles of cash and early retirement :-P, well… not really I actually never thought about making a career of it, when my sister got her first computer I was 13 and I would play with it all day, it turned out I wasn’t too bad with techie stuff, getting a degree in computer science was rather easy.
I am an avid squash addict and I used to play almost every day, one of the reasons why I choose to live in Santa Monica, the only city I know with a squash court, but the court got flooded last year and they haven’t fix it!
Since I’m Mexican and too apathetic to break the stereotype, you’ll regularly find me eating tacos, gorditas and enchiladas.
For as long as I can remember I have been very fond of reading. My favorite authors include Gary Jennings, Dante Alighieri, Cardenas Cantu and many more. I also spend a great deal of time reading news sites such as Reforma, El Universal, Techcrunch, Engagdet and Gizmodo.
