I have known Pek for about a year and am continually impressed at the broad range of his talents. He is creative and innovative, both a top-notch coder and designer. Pek is that very rare person who has great ideas, _and_ knows how to execute them — and he presents them well, too. If you have the opportunity to hire, work for or with Pek, or even just attend one of his presentations – take it.
