Landon Buford has one of the most Creative Beginnings to celebrate during this month long celebration.
Landon Buford was an entertainment and sports journalist born in Seattle, Washington, and grew up in Richardson, TX. He received his associate degree in Arts and Science from Bellevue College in Bellevue, Washington, and his BSc in Social Sciences from Washington State University.
After completing his WSU degree, Landon worked with Norris Frederick, a U.S. track and field team member, as a marketing intern. Frederick is recognized as the most decorated athlete in the State of Washington.
Over the past five years, Buford enjoyed interviewing sports figures such as Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Steph Curry, Dallas Mavericks Governor Mark Cuban, Dirk Nowitzki, and Dwyane Wade.
He also had the opportunity to interview artists such as Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Kenny G, Wyclef Jean, and David Banner.
His work has been mentioned in The Miami Herald, Bleacher Report, Yahoo Sports, USA Today Sports, ESPN, International Business Times, Heavy.com, Sports Illustrated, Business Insider, Sporting News, The Ringer, Page Six, and XXL Magazine.
Buford currently operates LandonBuford.com website and contributes to Sports Illustrated Forty-Eight Minutes.com.
Buford is looking to eventually turn LandonBuford.com into a place where recent grads looking to enter media can have a landing spot after college. He is also looking to provide an opportunity to make a living and not have to take unpaid internships and then must figure out how to supplement with other work. He and many of his colleagues faced coming out of college, and if he can help it, he doesn’t want others to experience it.
