Hi, my name is Pia Klancar. I am a...

User-centered, Product-oriented, People person

I always hoped to become a design unicorn or a fluffy panda, but I like high level concepts, problem solving, and work focused on people more than moving pixels. If I was once only focused on the details, now I see the big picture first and start at the end. I appreciate other people’s’ expertise in making a product better and have the most joy when I can bring coaching and mentoring to my daily work.

A pretty well known fact is that I hate spiders to a point where Australia will probably never see me. And mornings. Mornings without my yoga routine and a huge cup of coffee (or lately matcha latte) are just not worth waking up for.
