Joanna Gentillalli is smart and brings a lot of experience to the Media team from past agencies like Havas. She has a lot of non-conventional pets including a chinchilla and a sweet, snaggletoothed dog named Benji.
When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Lawyer. Fun fact: I took the LSATs in college, got a pretty good score and then decided not to go to law school at the last minute.
A social cause you care deeply about and why?
Suicide prevention. Depression and thoughts of suicide don’t discriminate- it’s important for us to start the conversation and intervene as much as we can, including with people that you would have never guessed were being affected.
If you could earn a living doing anything else, what would it be?
Working at a fashion house in New York or Milan
You can invite 3 people from either present day or history to break bread with, who would it be and why?
John Lennon (The Beatles is my all-time favorite band), Anthony Bourdain (I’d love to have one meal with him and talk about his experiences traveling the world), Michelle Obama (because she seems super fun and is a boss bitch)
In 5 words, describe yourself? (must use all 5….no more…no less)
My dog Benji is life.
