Why Terry Crews? Well it’s not just because he is a Golden Globe award-winning action and comedy star. He’s also an expert on overcoming fear, knowing the work it takes to do so, in order to live one’s life to its highest potential.

Named a Time Person of the Year in 2017 and described as one of the most progressive and thoughtful voices on gender roles, Terry Crews is sure to both educate and entertain our INSIGHTS audience.

But behind the brawn, bullets, and laughs is a renaissance man from Flint, Michigan who, as a teen, got his first big break after high school with an art scholarship at the prestigious Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan. This was followed by an Art Excellence scholarship and a full-ride athletic scholarship for football at Western Michigan University, where, as a star defensive end, he helped lead the Broncos to a Mid-Atlantic Conference Championship in 1988.

After several years in the NFL (where he painted portraits of teammates to supplement his income) with the Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers, Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles, Crews turned his talents to the performing arts, where his talent, hard work, character and dedication has made him one of the most sought out and respected talents in the industry.
