Born and raised in Los Angeles, Hector discovered his love for the arts and entertainment at a young age when he decided to try out for his schools play at the age of 9. That same year, he was approached by talent scouts while he was at the mall with his family who suggested he sign up for their acting program which included classes and a showcase. He would go on to complete the program and receive 5 offers from the 6 managers and agents at the showcase. After he signed on with a manager, Hector booked a role in a USC student thesis film before landing a role in an episode of Showtime's "Shameless." Continuing to audition and work on his career throughout his years in school, Hector was also very active, playing basketball, football, and baseball. Hector also excelled in the academic field and even went on to graduate high school early at the age of 16, all the while pursuing his career as an actor. Hector would soon land his breakout role in the Disney film MCFARLAND, USA, starring alongside Kevin Costner, Maria Bello, and Diana Maria Riva. A man with many talents and passions, Hector is also a fully licensed mortgage loan officer at just 23 years old and has been working in real estate for a little over 4 years.
