Alex Dawson


Alex Dawson moved to Jackson Hole in 2006 following several years in New York City and Chicago. After graduating from Princeton University with a B.A. in English Literature, Alex went on to have a career in documentary film and television production. Her work has been seen on networks including PBS, The Travel Channel, The History Channel, Discovery Channel and CNBC.

She and her husband, Greg Gricus, co-directed the award-winning film, “Wild Horse, Wild Ride,” which tells the story of horse trainers who work with wild mustangs to get them adopted out of federal corrals. Alex has a passion for animal rescue which began in her childhood, taking in strays and convincing her parents to make them part of her family. She has produced several videos which tell the story of the life-saving work of the Animal Adoption Center. In addition to the Animal Adoption Center, Alex sits on the board of Teton Literacy Center. She is the proud adopter of beloved Saint Bernard mix and AAC alumnus, Quincy, as well as Whiskey, her accidental tabby cat who, wisely, arrived on her family’s doorstep in 2012 and never left.
