About

Josh Levin

Hi, I’m Josh. In the fall, I will be a freshman at the University Of Massachusetts Boston. In high school. I was an active student journalist, serving as the editor of The Shakerite for my senior year. I also founded The Terabyte Tribune, an online technology news publication. I spend my spare time programming and maintaining open-source software, and doing volunteer community management and moderation.

I enjoy figuring out how things work and how I can utilize that knowledge in other projects. I like to force myself to think outside the box. I’m motivated by seeing hard work pay off. Planning and logistics are my greatest strengths.
