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.
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.
