Lawson McGrain was born Topeka, Kansas and spent the first 5 years of life there with his mother and father, as he is an only child. His parents moved to Olathe, Kansas, where he grew up. Lawson attended Olathe Northwest High School, where he participated in athletics and was active in the performing arts. He feels as though his discovery of theatre and film helped shaped him to be who he is today. He is proud of his accomplishment of creating of a feature-length film he worked on with friends in the summer of 2018. In his first year at Columbia College, Lawson majored in Acting, to later realize that Film was his passion. He has since changed his major accordingly. Lawson is passionate about collaborating with other creatives and works with a production company to set up lights, sound, and tech for live events.
