About me

Software Developer Interview: I regularly interview candidates for software developer positions from entry-level to senior/tech lead. I'm happy to answer questions and give tips, or give feedback on a sample interview task.


Self-Employment: I worked as a self-employed software developer (contractor) for 15 years. I worked in US/Canada for US and Canadian clients.

Bio: I was born in the US shortly after my family left Czechoslovakia as refugees from the 1968 Soviet-led invasion. I grew up in California and had a worm's-eye view of the 1984 and 1992 tech busts. After a B.Sc. in chemistry at Harvey Mudd College, I earned a Fulbright fellowship and a National Science Foundation fellowship to study theoretical chemistry. I left graduate school in 1998 to work as a self-employed software developer in the process control / chemical process industry. In 2015 I joined Apple as a software developer. Now, I manage a group of software developers who build custom software to secure network traffic in Apple's internal cloud.
