Welcome to jankasal.com
The official site of Jan Kasal, graphic designer, father, husband, and marathoner 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 need to 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 am USATF-certified level 1 coach, member of National Ski Patrol, and president of the Malverne Educational and Fitness Foundation, organization that supports programs for local youth. Our main fundraiser is the annual Malverne 5K run we hold in October.
I have 4 children. The oldest lives in Washington, DC, and the youngest attends Malverne public schools. 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. I ran (unsuccessfully) several times for a seat on the board of education in school district 12 (Malverne Union Free School District).
This personal site reflects my opinions. 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.
