Today we’d like to introduce you to Landon Spencer.
Hi Landon, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
I fell in love with art in 2015 as a high school student who was a visionary for photography. I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur and dreamed of owning and building a high-rise office from a young age.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
A lot of the struggles I faced as a creative and entrepreneur is mentorship. I always felt like a creative in Nashville and as an African American entrepreneur finding someone to understand my story.
Just a kid trying to find myself in a city that has many opportunities but doesn’t know where to start. I’ve played in many fields and still haven’t figured myself completely out yet.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I’m more of a dancer but I started in film production/photography. I am also an intern with Creative Minds Artist Management learning the business of music.
I am definitely proud of my dedication despite the ups and downs regarding my curiosities and the circumstances of society.
What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
I love that Nashville has some of the most unique talent to be seen. I feel as if everyone has a story and wants to perfect their story to the best of their ability.
I would say what I like least about our city is accessibility. We are an up-and-growing city and still have to reach outside of Nashville for opportunities.
