Hi, I’m Hector. My fascination for Mid-century Modern architecture, design and pop culture has grown and grown since I relocated several years ago to Phoenix, Arizona. This town really came of age in the middle of the last century, and thankfully plenty of stylistic jewels from that era are still around to inspire me artistically. What else inspires me? A good surf or rockabilly beat, a classic car show, digging into a science fiction novel, a road trip, or a scenic hike.
Why Grasshopper Hill?
One of my favorite places is Chapultepec Park in Mexico City, whose Nahuatl name translates into “Grasshopper Hill” in English. There’s no place like a park for people — and ideas — to spring to life.
