I like to dabble with things that ought to be dabbled with. ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ“


Hi, Iโ€™m Frances!

Iโ€™m a Latina (Peruvian-American) who engineers solutions to make your working life more simple, more pleasant and more productive.

Or better yet, Iโ€™m a unicorn (1% of women in tech identify as Latina) who is working for another unicorn (Slack). ๐Ÿฆ„

I like to dabble with things that shouldnโ€™t ought to be dabbled with.

Well, at leastโ€ฆ thatโ€™s my slogan.

My โ€œlife mottoโ€, if you will.

Might have something to do with human nature in general, though, so interpret it as you will.
