Levi is currently a student at CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice, where he is pursuing degrees in Law & Society and Culture & Deviance Studies. His burgeoning interest in social justice led him to intern at the Kings County District Attorney’s Office and at the Queens Supreme Court with Judge Pam Jackman Brown, and, more recently, to become a Pinkerton Community Fellow. As a Pinkerton Community Fellow, Levi works at The Possibility Project, an NYC based not-for-profit that creates original musical dramas written and performed by young people in and out of the juvenile justice and foster care systems.

Presently, Levi is also a research assistant for social scientists at John Jay College. He hopes to one day have his social science research published.
