Levave was born in Wellington. He attended St Patrick's College.

Levave made his provincial rugby debut at the age of 19 for Wellington. The next year, aged twenty, he made the Hurricanes wider training group.

Earlier in the season he played for the New Zealand U21 team.

Levave signed a two-year deal with Japanese club Toyota Verblitz in 2014, he previously played for another Japanese club in 2012 the Honda Heat.[2]
