MILES CRAWFORD

Born in Boston. Reared in New York. Living in Los Angeles.

My professional life began in the performing arts: I've worked extensively with the Off-Broadway show STOMP, performing in the New York, US and international companies. My music career encompasses drumming in the studio, in videos, and on stage with Eminem, Ringo Starr, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Art Garfunkel, Darwin Deez, Bronagh Gallagher, and other international acts.

My travels as a performer and musician led to directing and cinematography.

Short film, "Drum-Off," was featured at LACMA and on The Huffington Post; "I Forgot My Phone" currently has over 50 million views, and received attention from mainstream news outlets around the world. "DNA," plays on MTV was nominated for a UK Music Video Award.

As a Director of Photography I shot the series "2 Black Dudes," which was bought by 20th Century Fox. "SIDETRACKED," is an official selection of the 2017 Hollywood Black Film Festival.

My continuing work in arts education as a teacher and choreographer, has been incredibly fulfilling: in Los Angeles for CITYStage and THEATRE 31, and in Salvador, Brazil with the non-profit Quabales.
