My name is Martin Hengst and I am the principal digital content creator for 575 Digital Media.
Telling a story is in my DNA. There are many ways to tell a story, from putting words to a page to capturing a fleeting moment in one perfect image. If you’re already familiar with my work, thank you for your support. If you are new here, welcome! I hope you enjoy what you find.
I write the bestselling Magic of Solendrea fantasy series, dabble in creative photography, and offer freelance services, creating content for a variety of topics including entertainment, travel, minimalism, gaming, and more. If you’d like to discuss a freelance project, please get in touch.
I’ve been an avid reader since I was a kid. I cut my teeth on Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books. You know the ones, the white borders with the campy covers. As I got older, I turned my sights toward science fiction and fantasy and I never looked back. The works of Anne McCaffrey, the Dragonlance Chronicles, and the Dresden Files books are favorites in my library.
I love video games and prefer my PC or Switch. Some of my favorite games at the moment are Mario Kart, Mini Metro, Railway Empire and Breath of the Wild.
I also enjoy board and card games. Classic Clue is always a winner. I also enjoy Ticket to Ride, Cards Against Humanity, and Pandemic.
Photography is a passion of mine and I’ve dabbled in it professionally over the years. You can find some of the work I’ve done on the photos page.
I love meeting and getting to know new people. If you’d like to talk about my work, suggest a collaboration, or just want to say hi, feel free to connect with me and I’ll be happy to get back to you as soon as I can.
