WHO IS LEVON MYERS?
I am a life force driven by passion.
In my 28 years, I have not settled for less than my absolute best in any of my pursuits.
As a child, I was always drawing, writing, and finding any possible way to express myself creatively. This side of me took a backseat for some time, as I committed all of myself to a football career, resulting in a full scholarship to Northern Illinois University and a free agent contract with the Dallas Cowboys.
After retiring from football in 2017, I was hired to work in sponsorship advertising with the University of Wisconsin Badgers. While I leaned on my background as an athlete in the early stages of my professional career, my desire to design content and entertain grew until it was my primary driving force.
Levon the Light Productions was born with the mission to be a catalyst for inspiration through content creation.
