That’s me. Hank Whitson: avid gamer, narrative designer, and storyteller. You can find my resume here and writing samples here.

I am accepting freelance work and searching for another creative team to join in the Los Angeles area. My current slate of personal projects include a contemporary fantasy novel and a card/board game set in the universe of my prior contemporary fantasy novel, and convention season has arrived, which means I am gearing up for another round of ConQuesting as well.

Recently, I worked as 42 Entertainment‘s Narrative Designer. They had me write advertising copy, fictional websites, universe bibles, scripts, slogans, and more. I have also designed puzzles, UI, games, and live events.

Prior to my work with 42E, I attended the Georgia Institute of Technology. When it became apparent I would not be a brilliant media theorist or develop the next big disruptive technology, they sent me back to California with a Masters Degree in Digital Media. That degree means many things to many people. For me, it is essentially a comparative literature degree filtered through the lens of video game design and criticism. While I was at Tech, I worked as a researcher and served as the Entertainment Editor for their award-winning school paper, The Technique. Before heading to Atlanta, I earned an English degree with an emphasis in creative writing from University of California at Irvine, while learning the basics of Iaido and selling books for Barnes & Noble. In high school, I studied ballet to woo the woman of my dreams.

I live with her in Burbank, along with the three black cats that own us. During my off-hours, I  consume games and  fiction in every format imaginable. Occasionally I write non-fiction about the things I enjoy. I also enjoy traveling, skiing, collecting masks, and cosplay.
