Foreign languages:

My native language is Czech.

I have very good knowledge of English. I can understand English speaking person without any problems. I watch and listen to English video and audio materials on regular basis without subtitles or any aids. But I am not used to speaking in English.

I can make simple conversation in Japanese. But I have only limited knowledge of writing and reading - I can read and write hiragana, katakana and about 100 kanji.

I was learning French for 7 years at high school, but sadly I didn't have much chance to use it. Now, I can understand simple written text in French, but I would have big problems if I needed to make more than very basic conversation.

Professional knowledge and experience:

I have been making web pages for several years now. I am familiar with HTML, CSS, PHP and SQL. At first I was using structured programming techniques, but later i switched to object programming. I specialize in WebCMS and web sites based on extensive usage of database. I created various web pages and contributed to several interesting projects. Here are some examples: complex redaction system for Czech sociology journal Biograf; webCMS for pages of Center for Theoretical Study, joint workplace of Charles University in Prague and the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (http://cts.cuni.cz/); eshop Mangaya (http://mangaya.cz/); tournament signup system for Czech petanque club association ČAPEK (http://petanque.cstv.cz/); homepage of petanque club 1293 Vojnův Městec (http://pk1293.vojnuvmestec.cz/). I have basic knowledge of computer hardware, networking, software - I can easily put together computer from components or configure office network with router.

Other skills and hobbies:

I play petanque. In year 2011 I participated in more than 13 tournaments including national championships of triplets, doubles and singles. My other hobbies are japanese calligraphy and ink painting, I like to read classic detective novels, I listen to new wave and alternative rock. In free time I casually play computer games and I like to read Japanese manga and watch sci-fi and anime series.
