Dan דניאלּ Goldman >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> writer⚡️narrative designer⚡️graphic novelist


I founded Kinjin Story Lab to harness everything I’ve learned in my 15+ years
telling stories across video games, TV and graphic novels to
grow fictional worlds
inhabited by people you can feel.


My projects have been exhibited on five continents, played by millions of people,
honored by the United Nations, and nominated for Emmy and Eisner awards.


What I bring to every project — my greatest talent and deepest love – is creating journeys for mature characters who teach us about their (and our) world.

Story is a liquid that can change its shape to fit any medium it's poured into, but its essence remains the same.
