I’m David Levin, a freelance science and technology journalist based in Boston, where I’ve spent more than a decade producing audio, interactive, video, and text pieces for clients around the country. In the course of my work, I’ve interviewed Nobel laureates, flown in homemade aircraft, chased tornadoes through the midwest, and spent a month at sea with scientists studying exotic life on the ocean floor. Before setting out as an independent, I worked as as a web producer at NOVA, the PBS science series, where I created and hosted the show’s award-winning audio podcast. Along the way, I’ve earned journalism fellowships from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Carnegie Mellon University, and the Marine Biological Laboratory.
I’m not a scientist, but I did once play one on TV.
