Kyle Headshot 5_24.jpg


Born and raised in Albuquerque, Kyle Burrell-Cowan (AKA Kyle T. Cowan) is a gay Juris Doctor, Actor, and Writer. Having recently graduated from the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law, Burrell-Cowan possesses a diverse range of legal interests, including intellectual property, licensing, contracts, criminal law, litigation, and administrative law.


During the Spring of '24, while working as a Student Law Clerk at the Rocky Mountain Veterans Advocacy Project, Burrell-Cowan completed three separate discharge upgrades, primarily advocating for victims of military sexual trauma during the "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" era. As a Summer ’23 Legal Intern practicing under the Student Practice Act in Arapahoe County Court, Burrell-Cowan gained invaluable docket and trial experience, securing a guilty verdict on a seemingly unwinnable trial through pure advocacy, testimonial evidence, and innovative use of technology. Additionally, at District 18, Burrell-Cowan collaborated with Judge Hernandez to advocate for more progressive gender identifying language on Juror Forms. Prior to these experiences, he served as a Legal Intern at Cocona Labs Inc. in Summer and Fall of ’22, gaining insight into corporate law, contracts, negotiation, intellectual property, and licensing. Burrell-Cowan is driven by his passion for helping others and enacting positive change.


As an actor, Cowan has left his mark on productions including The Short History Of The Long Road, Better Call Saul, Preacher, War On Everyone, Manhattan, Camouflage, and Odd Thomas. As a screenwriter, Cowan boasts 17 Coverfly Accolades and has achieved Finalist status in numerous competitions. His TV Pilot: Don’t Say Gay! received a prestigious Top 1% Accolade on Coverfly. Cowan is also lauded for his multifaceted role in the indie feature film Camouflage, where he excelled in Writing, Directing, Producing, Editing, and Starring. The film is available via Vimeo and YouTube.


As an author, Sunshine is Forever, Cowan’s debut novel, soared to number one store seller status at Barnes and Noble for several consecutive weeks in Albuquerque, NM. The audiobook, available on Audible, clinched an Earphones Award from AudioFile Magazine.


Burrell-Cowan graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Writing and Directing from the University of Colorado, Denver, and recently earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law.

After a life-changing event, Hunter decides that he can't go on... 

...which lands him in Camp Sunshine, a rehab center for depressed teens. Hunter is determined to keep everyone there out of his head, especially his therapist. But when he meets Corin, a beautiful, mysterious, and confident fellow camper, all Hunter wants to do is open up to her―despite the fact that he's been warned Corin is bad news. 

When Corin devises a plan for them to break out of the camp, Hunter is faced with the ultimate choice―will he run from the traumatic incident he's tried so hard to escape, or will he learn that his mistakes have landed him right where he's meant to be?
