MICHAEL ALLYN CRAWFORD

Actor

Michael was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. During high school he discovered a need to tell stories. This led him to the University of Northern Colorado where he earned his B.A in theatre arts. Right after graduating in 2018, he moved to New York to immerse himself in the craft of acting. That decision would prove one of the most challenging and rewarding risks he has taken so far. 

He is interested in continually expanding his horizons and the art he takes in. Knowing that being an artist means living and experiencing life, Michael has been inspired by everything from Video games to Baldwin's essays. Michael believes his purpose, as well as the purpose of art is to excavate for the truth, to "allow suffering to speak" in the words of Dr. Cornel West.
