Dan Levy | Professional Conversationalist.
Dan Levy is the creator of 609design, a media and design firm in New Jersey. If you’ve seen the giant red R or Rutgers Football billboards plastered across the state somewhere, you’ve seen his work. Levy is also responsible for the Why Can’t Us movement that raised $12,000 for ALS during the Phillies’ run to the 2008 World Series and helped raise nearly $10,000 for Ante Up for Africa as part of the Blogs with Balls Charity Poker Shootout.
No longer traversing the NJ Turnpike for two plus hours a day, Levy was able to concentrate more on his true passion: designing t-shirts and yelling at his computer. But he quickly learned that when someone else is talking through the other end of the computer, and you record it, it’s decidedly less crazy. It’s actually pretty entertaining.
And if you like to read words instead of listen to them, he writes every day at The Sporting Blog and has contributed to an array of sites around the internet, most notably WashingtonPost.com’s football blog The League.
Nick began his career working in journalism as the Daily Planner on the assignment desk at NBC 10 in Philadelphia but made the move to public relations when he accepted the position of athletic communications assistant at Rutgers University in 2003. While there he acted as a liaison between the press and the public for six Division I sports programs.
In 2004, Nick accepted a position as a publicist for Allied Advertising in Philadelphia where he is currently the Assistant Director of Publicity and Promotions and represents national clients such as Walt Disney Pictures, Touchstone Pictures and Sony Pictures as their local arm for publicity and promotions.
In the spring of 2006, he completed his Masters in Journalism at Temple University.
