Spread your story
Like a delicious meal, a good story is best when shared with others.
Dos Avocados is a homegrown full-service storytelling startup, dedicated to documenting the fascinating lives and experiences of those who have overcome challenges to thrive.
What we believe
Your story matters.
Your story should be told.
At Dos Avocados, every story — no matter the size, shape, or character — deserves to be told and heard.
Storytelling has been a vital part of human communication for thousands of years, and its importance continues to endure in modern times.
Stories have the power to capture our imaginations, evoke our emotions, and convey complex ideas and values in a way that is relatable and memorable. They allow us to connect with others on a deep level, fostering empathy and understanding across cultures and generations.
Storytelling also plays a critical role in preserving cultural traditions and historical knowledge, ensuring that these important aspects of our collective heritage are not lost over time.
Storytelling is an essential tool for sharing ideas, inspiring change, and creating meaning in our lives.
Let us share your story.

Jossy Salguero and Dan Smith
A citizen of the world, Jossy Salguero has lived in more than a dozen countries, speaks four languages and has spent most of her life advocating on behalf of others.
A native of North Carolina, Dan Smith is a seasoned storyteller with more than two decades of communications experience, a passion for connecting cultures, and a sense of curiosity that often leads him to places he never expected.
Combined, their sharp wits, diversity of experiences, and eagerness to listen allow them to craft stories with unique, unforgettable perspectives.
I genuinely believe in the power of human connection, empathy, and open communication to bolster creativity, business acumen, and solidarity to uplift one another to make a difference in the world.
I love the power of a compelling story: how it drives change in our lives, forms connections, provokes exploration of ourselves and others, and transforms the ‘everyday’ into the ‘extraordinary.’
Why choose us
More than 25 years of storytelling expertise, combining still photography, videography, the written word, and audio.
Your stories are complex; our breadth of perspectives, experience, and languages makes us the perfect advocates.
Like mixing lemon juice and avocado mash, our combination makes for a result that you can’t resist. (You’ll have to bring the chips, though.)
