While swimming as a child, David Levin spent as much time as possible under the surface, inspecting the bottom with a mask and flippers. Today, he maintains his deep interest in all things aquatic as a science and technology journalist, producing print, radio, and web pieces for clients around the country. In the course of his work, he has interviewed Nobel laureates, flown in homemade aircraft, chased tornadoes through the midwest, and participated in two oceanographic research cruises. In 2012, he joined researchers from the University of South Florida as they studied the effects of the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and in 2014, returned to sea aboard the research vessel Atlantis as shipboard correspondent for Woods Hole’s Dive and Discover program.
Before setting out as an freelance journalist, Levin worked for seven years as a web producer for NOVA, the PBS science series, where he created and hosted the show’s award-winning audio podcast. His work has also appeared nationally on public radio’s All Things Considered and Living on Earth, and aired locally in Boston on WBUR and WGBH-FM. Levin has been awarded journalism fellowships by Carnegie Mellon University and the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and was named as a WHOI Ocean Science Journalism fellow in 2009. He has a music degree, and is not afraid to use it.
