Michael Crain continues to build his entrepreneurial resume, most recently joining the newly merged Fort Worth real estate firm Williams Northern Crain as a partner with Ty Williams and Will Northern. Crain’s also the District 3 director for the Fort Worth City Councilman Brian Byrd, continuing his interests in public affairs.

And he and his wife, Joanna, are expanding their Fort Worth nonprofit Foodie Philanthropy, which partners with chefs to raise money for a selected charity each year, an idea they originally launched when they lived in Beijing, where Crain was chief of staff at the U.S. Embassy under President George W. Bush. In 2020, Foodie Philanthropy raised $55,000 for The Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation for suicide awareness, outreach and research, and the 2021 beneficiary is the Taste Project nonprofit restaurant. Foodie Philanthropy, in its sixth year in Fort Worth, has raised about $150,000 for five charities.
