Meet the new Copy Cats at Alpha Dog

You could say things are going pretty well here at Alpha Dog – so darn well that we’ve hired two new writers in the last few months! Jasmine Summers comes to us via Cambodia after she spent some time in the Fashion District trenches of Manhattan. Clayton Margerum is a creative vet, having started his advertising journey as an artist, then turning into a writer many long years and darker hairs ago. Together, they’re taking on the role Erin Cramer built over her tenure here; she’s taking a well-deserved sabbatical and returning in 2024 as a copyeditor/proofreader.

We asked Jasmine and Clayton to answer a few questions so our pack could get to know them better (and clearly, we need to go experience their karaoke performances):


Favorite foreign cuisine dish? Thai Pad See Ew

Favorite designer? Valentino

Favorite art gallery/museum? The Met Cloisters

Favorite author? Joan Didion is up there

Now that you know them a little better, be sure to reach out to Jasmine and Clayton for all your copy, karaoke, and scrapple advice!
