He has won several writing awards, and he garnered the Governor-General's Medal for academic achievement and student leadership while at university.

He is one of a handful of Canadian wine writers who has helped the Department of External Affairs in Ottawa choose the Canadian wines that are served in our embassies abroad. Levangie has published articles in most major Canadian newspapers, including The Montréal Gazette, The Vancouver Sun, The Globe and Mail, The Mail Star, and The Saint John Telegraph-Journal.

He's also taught classes on writing to high school students through Nova Scotia's Writers in the Schools program. In addition to his newspaper work, he has also reviewed restaurants for enRoute, Air Canada's in-flight magazine, and written articles for (Britain's) WINE magazine, Wine Access, The Crafts Report and Dalhousie-The Alumni Magazine. He has also sold two travel features and six shorter literary essays to Endless Vacation — a U.S. travel magazine with more than 1.5 million readers — that have promoted tourism in Atlantic Canada. Just one of these travel features was estimated to have boosted Nova Scotia's tourism business that year by $20 million.

He lives and works in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
