I'm Hector Ayala, founder of Bombillazo. What exactly is Bombillazo? Bombillazo is a project which I started in 2003 as an afternoon hobby (then known as Bombillazo Studios) to learn and create digital content and art for online forums. Since then it has turned into a professional business project with an expanded scope. I provide software solutions, graphic design and media editing services as well as participate in other ventures.
The name BOMBILLAZO (pronounced bom-bee-JAH-zo) is a combination of the word "bombilla" (Spanish for "light bulb") with the Spanish augmentative/agent suffix "azo". The closest, most literal translation to English I could think of would be "Lightbulber". As light bulbs are commonly used as a symbol of brightness and ideas, the name alludes to a person or entity that comes up with new and smart ideas. Striving for innovation, I adopted the name "El Bombillazo" ("The Lightbulber") as my online moniker. Then I decided to unify all my work and efforts under a single identity, thus Bombillazo is used as my moniker as well as the brand name for the project and subsidiaries.
Bombillazo Founder // Computer Engineer
From a very young age I was fascinated by science, computers and technology (thanks, Jurassic Park and Nintendo). I also had a very vivid imagination. Be it with LEGO blocks, crayons, Mario Paint, modeling clay or Kid Pix on a Macintosh, I spent countless hours building and inventing new things. As I grew up I started to design and create more complex ideas with LEGO Mindstorms and learn web programming and digital video editing with online tutorials. With all those influences I decided to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Engineering. Now I feel blessed to be able to work in a field where I can combine both the love and skills of technology with the passion of creating.
Although a firm believer that one person can make a big difference, my goal is to collaborate with other passionate individuals or teams to achieve greater achievements. Our success must always be grounded on integrity, commitment, skills and the desire to exceed.
The "motherland" of Bombillazo, Puerto Rico is a beautiful tropical island in the northeastern part of the Caribbean Sea. An unincorporated territory and Commonwealth of the United States of America, this small paradise has gorgeous environments, talented professionals and a unique cultural wealth.
Many business and technology opportunities can be found here, and Bombillazo will work to be involved in those solutions. For more information on doing business in Puerto Rico, click here.
