Key Accomplishments

I am a creative and social marketer at heart and lucky enough to have worked across a number of areas as an early member of the Twitter team. I am currently taking on consulting gigs while putting together a start up concept.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I bring a solid marketing background and an unflappable personality towards the journey. I am a collaborator, who enjoys learning from others and can truly roll up my sleeves for anything. I believe respect and communication is above all, ideals that will see a team through ups and downs. I am passionate about doing what is best for the company - not for myself.

Craig Whitmer
They're my friends
ever since I've known Francesca she's had a hunger and passion for starting her own business. She's creative and, when she finds what she's ... most interested in, unstoppable!
Anamitra Banerji
We worked together at Twitter
Francesca helped me onboard the first set of advertisers on to Twitter's brand new, untested, ad platform. She had very little to work with, ... lots of broken code, and plenty of uncertainty. She represented Twitter extremely well in those early days of the platform. Instead of looking for structure and supervision, she embraced the uncertainty. She excelled in crafting a product marketing story for businesses. She is an entrepreneur at heart.

She's hungry to be a do-er. Hands-on and likes to work hard and make things happen. Driven and a self-starter.

Francesca is passionate about the fashion industry and bringing it online in the best way possible. From her work bringing @NYCFW onto Twitt ... er to her founding of livethelook.com she has been finding the best way to showcase fashion online for years. Her knowledge in the area is a great asset.

Matt has an inherent talent to take a large quantity of spoken or written information and distill it into a poignant, clever and insightful ... piece of advice. He will also approach any challenge or question from multiple point of view, giving you a 360 degree answer that is always thorough. He is patient, direct and truly cares about helping. I always enjoy our discussions and am so fortunate to have him in my group of folks I can turn to.
