  • Profile description
  • After more than 15 years in IT and people management in corporations it's time for a little big break and maybe also a life change. To check out my career experience you can see the Linkedin profile https://www.linkedin.com/in/rastislav-galek-504a3844/
    Nevertheless what's in from my private life and usable skills:
    I was born in the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava and lived there ever since, but always enjoyed travelling all over the Europe and several places in the Indian Ocean. From the very young age I've been into various sports, IT and enjoyed nature and nights under the stars.
    My electro-technical secondary school gave me the basic skills working with electricity installations and also a bit of more programming skills, so I could build some mini apps, or web portals.
    The programming is almost gone over the years, but the logical and technical thinking is still there :-)
    I can cope with web portals, operating system maintenance and a lot of various apps and IT stuff...
    After my military service in special parachute forces and smaller successes in the Slovak Kick-box league I settled down to take care of my little daughter (little that time, now she'll soon turn 18 : )
    While working in various IT infrastructure and security roles I took on managerial skills and later moved in this direction. During this time I started and recently also successfully finished my University study in Psychology.
    While being a dedicated hard worker at work I still ran a lot of private projects where I used and build skills such as:
    Multiple full flat reconstructions where I personally did the demolition works, electricity, floating floor laying, plastering, painting, IKEA kitchen installations and many other works related to renovation and household. Yes I can do laundry and iron as well ;-)
    One of the reconstruction projects was also my own historical apartment which I ran and managed on Booking and Airbnb for a year and sold later to further grow the investments in a different real estate project.
    With my father I spend a lot of time with gardening and growing various crops.
    With my daughter I learned patience, children care and some motivation basics to make learning fun for her.
    Selling paintings as my hobby and a side job also grew my selling and negotiation skill.
    I can drive almost anything that has a steering wheel and have several hundred thousand of kilometres w/o an accident.
    Missing anything? Just ask :-)
    Thank you
    Rastislav
