Hey! I’m Hank Whitson: avid gamer, narrative designer, and storyteller. You can find my resume here and a selection of writing samples on my portfolio page.
You may have read my articles on Game Rant, SVG, and Looper, where I contribute as a feature writer. I also design games and other entertainment. I am always eager to take on new projects remotely, or in the greater Los Angeles area. In my off hours, I write fiction, most notably in the shared Anno Amagium universe.
Prior to freelancing, I worked as 42 Entertainment’s Narrative Designer where I wrote fictional websites, universe bibles, scripts, slogans, and more. I have also designed puzzles, UI, games, and live events.
Before 42E, I attended the Georgia Institute of Technology and came back to my native California with a Masters Degree in Digital Media. While I was at Tech, I worked as a graduate research analyst and served as the Entertainment Editor for the award-winning school paper, The Technique.
I earned my BA in English from University of California at Irvine with an elective, departmental emphasis in creative writing. While matriculating, I learned the basics of Iaido and sold books for the local Barnes & Noble.
In high school, I studied ballet to woo the woman of my dreams. Now I live with her in Duarte, where we are happily owned by three black cats. When I have free time, I play games, mix drinks, and consume fiction in every format imaginable, with a particular taste for anime.Â I also enjoy traveling, skiing, collecting masks, and cosplay.
