InfoFrom 1995 to 2002, Leventhal was employed as Senior Federal Relations Officer for the Association of American Universities (AAU). In this position, he advised the presidents of 63 major North American universities, and their staffs, on political and policy developments related to higher education and scientific research.

For eight years before joining the AAU staff, Leventhal served on the staff of the United States Senate. He was legislative director for Senator Barbara A. Mikulski of Maryland from 1993 to 1995 and earlier served three years as Senator Mikulski's legislative assistant for appropriations, budget, tax, and transportation issues. From 1987 to 1990, Leventhal was a research assistant on the tax staff of the Senate Finance Committee under its then-Chairman Lloyd Bentsen of Texas.

From 1996 to 2001, Leventhal served as chairman of the Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee. During his tenure as chairman, the committee became substantially more representative of the county's diverse demographics. It also modernized its information systems technology, significantly increased its base of donors and grassroots workers, and mounted an ambitious get-out-the-vote effort that increased the number of Democrats in the state legislature.

Earlier, he worked on the staff of the Maryland General Assembly in Annapolis and served as campaign coordinator for local election campaigns in Maryland and California, including Ida G. Ruben's first successful campaign for the Maryland Senate in 1986.

Leventhal has served on the Board of Directors of CASA of Maryland, on the City of Takoma Park's Elections Task Force and Transportation Policy Committee and on the Montgomery County Census Task Force.

He also has taught a course on Congress as an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Leventhal received a Master of Administrative Science degree in public administration from the Johns Hopkins University School of Continuing Studies and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of California at Berkeley. He grew up in Maryland and lives in Takoma Park with his wife, Soraia P. Leventhal, and their two sons.
