Hello, I’m HEctor NANDEZ!
Raised in the Heart of Queens, I am a forward thinker who vows to fight ugly interfaces and confusing user experiences. For over four years, I have gladly poured all my super conscious energy in advocating for my User. I design so my customers never has to think and can effortlessly get what they need. I enjoy working in teams, especially if we are feeding the homeless.
My fascination for designing user experiences through digital strategy started ten years ago while I was serving my country as a Medical assistant. During a special project, I helped work on a Dental scheduling software system called Dencas. When the software was finally launched I witnessed our dental offices increase in productivity and morale by over 40%. It was then that I realized the power of great design.
Three years later, I am Honorably Discharged, on my way to finishing college and soon discovering my destiny in the digital world. It all began in my freshman year when I started working for a start-up called UClass.org, a now multi-million dollar company, where teachers collaborate and effectively reach their K - 8th grade students through a SaaS platform similar to Blackboard for college students. It was then that I fell in love with all things digital.
Not too long after, I started my own creative agency during Junior year of College. I had out together a holistic digital strategy agency where we did all digital work in house; from digital marketing to web development. It was then when I discoverd User Experience Design and became engulfed in its tenets.
In the summer of 2015, I committed to the field of User Experience and enrolled in the the General Assembly’s UXDI 12 week Immersive. I wasn't prepared for the amount of mental pain I was about to under take from this challenging program and neither did I imagine I would make so many life long friends at graduation! I immediately started working for a
