Welcome to jankasal.com

The official site of Jan Kasal, graphic designer, father, and husband residing in Malverne, New York. As the internet proliferates in our lives, disseminating bits of our personal information leaked from banks, marketing, and governmental agencies, we all should create our official, personal spot on the internet where we can manage the correct information about ourselves.

As the site tag line suggests, the site contains information about my hobby—running. To put my hobby to good use I coach the OLL Malverne track team registered with CYO Nassau/Suffolk. I also coach adults preparing for long distance races. I am USATF-certified level 1 coach. I am also member of National Ski Patrol and joined the Malverne Educational and Fitness Foundation to help organize the Malverne 5K run.

I have 4 children. The oldest attends a college and the youngest is too young to attend anything so far. I moved to Malverne in 1996 from Lynbrook, originally coming from the Czech Republic.

I received B.A. in graphic design, and I maintain a separate site for my line of work as a graphic designer. I received M.A. from Charles University in Prague, where I studied languages and literature. In May 2013, I ran unsuccessfully for a seat on the board of education in school district 12 (Malverne Union Free SD).

This personal site reflects my opinions and personal opinions of guest contributors.  Should you need to know more, use the Contact tab above. You also can get in touch with me via LinkedIn profile, or Twitter, or Facebook fan page. The opportunities are endless.
