Hello DEV community!
My name is Levi Sharpe, and I am one of DEV's newest hires. I am a podcast producer and sound designer. I currently work on the CodeNewbie and Base.cs podcasts, hosted by Saron Yitbarek. CodeNewbie is an organization which fosters a supportive, international community of people learning to code, which has now been acquired by DEV!
Previous to working at CodeNewbie, I was lead podcast producer at Gizmodo Media Group, where I helped create and produced Lifehacker’s Webby-nominated podcast, The Upgrade, as well as Jezebel's pop culture podcast DirtCast and their politics show Big Time Dicks.
I received my master's from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, and my work has been featured on Marketplace Tech, Marketplace Weekend, Codebreaker, Actuality, The Takeaway, Word of Mouth, and Popular Science. You can take a look at some of my work at levisharpe.com.
As a passion project, I sound design and mix the narrative fiction podcast Roommate From Hell, which is an independent show I make with some friends about a girl named Claire who moves in with a literal demon from hell named Bea, they become friends, and antics ensue.
Some of my other passions outside of podcasting include banjo picking, sculpting, cocktail-making, cycling, and nerd stuff like Magic: The Gathering, D&D, and comics. I've also been dabbling in Python.
I am really excited about being a part of the DEV team and exploring and expanding our podcast and audio endeavors!
