Lori Crawford

Lori Beth Crawford has two great passions. Television and writing. As a child, she was a walking TV guide. When not watching TV, she was devouring every book she could get her hands on. Nearly a decade later, her love for reading developed into a passion for writing. She graduated from short stories and imaginary friends to write her first novel when she turned sixteen. It went on to languish in the bottom of a drawer where it rightfully belongs.
 
Lori went to Washington University in St. Louis with the sole intention of becoming a lawyer. She adored her participation in undergraduate mock trials. Even though she garnered outstanding witness and outstanding attorney awards something was missing. She just could not shake her passion for writing and television.
 
The summer after her sophomore year, Lori won an internship at CBS News in New York. Even though she was never a fan of news programs, she eagerly took the position. Upon arrival, she was ecstatic to learn that As The World Turns, her favorite daytime drama, was filmed in the same building. Their writers' assistant took her to lunch before the summer was over and she was hooked. She finally discovered how she was going to combine her two passions. Lori was going to write for television.
 
She returned to college and jumped wholeheartedly into entertainment. She produced Black Anthology during her junior year and turned the first profit in the show's history. When she produced it the next year, they were able to work with an increased budget due to the previous year's success.
 
After graduating with a B.A. in Psychology and Writing, Lori moved to Los Angeles to pursue her career. She set out to gain experience in the entertainment industry by obtaining access to sets via background work. From there she moved on to work in offices at such auspicious companies as Warner Bros., HBO, Court TV, Disney Television Animation and Touchstone Television.

She's been a Preacher's Kid her whole life.
