IT poradenství a G Suite
I specialize in IT consulting and G Suite (formerly Google Apps). I’m an authorized Google Cloud Partner (formerly Google Apps Authorized Reseller), and I run Jak na IT (“How To Do IT”), a website with guides for smarter ways to get things done on computers, phones, and the Web.

        Google Cloud Partner

I also worked for 18 years at ZONER software. I began as a developer, then led my team, and ultimately spent 4 years as the technical director of the Software Division. I helped give birth to many of its products, including the company’s flagship product – Zoner Photo Studio. After those 18 years I decided it was time for a change, and now I’m a freelancer.

Personal

I live in the city of Brno. I’m the father of two smart and beautiful daughters, and I’m a very happy man. I ride to work on my bicycle. Sometimes I’m a compulsive writer, and it shows on my personal blog. Other times, I take pictures. I also team up with my daughters Klárka and Eliška to publish the Hravá snídaně (Playful Breakfast) blog.
