Jen Avison Smith

Freelance Writer, Editor and Ghostwriter

I'm fresh out of college and ready to WORK. Writing is my first love, my passion and the thing I'm best at, besides making some really spicy chili. I love traveling, learning new languages, working, cooking and being outside. I'm hoping to build a career from collaborating with the talented public and producing quality work. Message me with business inquiries, or to get an excellent recipe for cheesecake brownies. Both are equally welcome.

daisy barringer

Freelance Writer/Editor/Content Strategist

I'm an experienced writer, editor, and storyteller with a passion for finding new and important stories to tell in a way that resonates with readers. I write about pretty much anything and everything (seriously) including, restaurants/bars, travel, sports (I had a 49ers column at SFist for nine years), lifestyle, fashion/beauty, commentary/opinion pieces, interviews, and more. I've even put my gigantic Saint Bernard to good use by reviewing dog products (Note: you can put a 150-pound dog in a fitted onesie meant to control shedding, but you can't make him like it). My work appears on Thrillist, Eater SF, Eventbrite, SFist, The Nob Hill Gazette, Adobe, The Bold Italic, Buzzfeed, xoJane, Dogster, CBS, Time Out,, Culture Trip, Yelp’s business blog, Thumbtack, Patreon,, and others. I also have experience as a copywriter and content strategist for brands like Victoria's Secret, bebe, deLiA*s, AutoDesk, NorCal Cannabis, and Sephora.
