Crawford received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Florida Atlantic University and served at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts teaching directing for their School of Filmmaking .[1]

The Variety Movie Guide called his portrayal of the title character in the film Jake Speed "well played" and stated he delivered his lines "as an old-fashioned paperback hero would - in cliches".[2] He directed and starred in Crime Lords, which was called "predictable" by DVD & video guide 2005[3] while the Variety TV Review called it unpretentious and entertaining.[4]

He co-wrote and co-produced the film Valley Girl with Andrew Lane.[5] He fought against the studio to ensure that Martha Coolidge was maintained as the director.[6]
