A Little About Me

Hello!  My name is Daniel Levitt and this page is designed to tell you a little about myself.

I was born in Rochester, Minnesota while my father worked at the Mayo Clinic and my mother worked as a nurse at a neighboring hospital.

When I was two, I moved to Fargo, North Dakota.  I lived there until I graduated from Fargo South High School (Go Bruins!) in the mid '90s.  I then moved to Grand Forks, ND to attend the University of North Dakota.

I originally went to become a member of the Aerospace Industry first as a pilot and then as an aircraft mechanic.  I graduated with that degree in 2000 and moved to Everett/Seattle, Washington to pursue that line of work.

In February 2001, I left that position to work at a Science Museum in Downtown Seattle until moving back to North Dakota in June of 2002.  From there, I went back to UND and graduated in 2005 with a double major in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.  

From there, I started substitute teaching while I pursued a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science online through University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  I graduated in 2008 and started work in September for Prairie Wind and OPS!

I come from a family of 7, including my mother (Helen), my father (Ralph), my brother (Michael), my sister (Rachel), and two dogs (Belle and Tessa).  My folks and the dogs still live in Fargo, North Dakota.  My sister is currently living in Minneapolis, Minnesota and my brother and his wife (Julia) live in Seattle, Washington. 

Mr. Levitt's Hobbies and Interests

I have a ton of hobbies and interests!  Look at my personal links to get a more in depth idea of what I enjoy most!

I enjoy a lot of different things, but most of all, I love talking and hanging out with my friends.

I really enjoy reading.  Believe it or not, I'm actually a picky reader!  I really enjoy historical fiction, adventure, and action however I've actually read a lot of different kinds of books.  Some of my favorite authors are:  Tom Clancy, Gary Paulson, Kate DiCamillo, Anne McAffrey, Timothy Zahn, Chris Crutcher, Kevin Henkes, John Green, Stephen Ambrose, Jeff Shaara, Michael Shaara, Kenneth Oppel, J. K. Rowling, Jon Sciezka, M.T. Anderson, and many many more!

I really enjoy listening to music, hockey, old comedies, going to the Henry Doorly Zoo, playing video games with friends, practicing Martial Arts, and I dabble here and there in photography.   I really enjoy travelling by airplane.  I've travelled all over the world including 25 of the 50 states (including Alaska and Hawaii), Canada, Mexico, parts of Europe, and even Australia!  In the summer of 2011, I'm even going to Costa Rica, England, and Ireland!
