He is best known for his PJ Media internet videos and short films, one of which, "Three and a Half Days", has been viewed more than 2.4 million times on YouTube .〔 He is currently the presenter of ''Afterburner'' and ''The Firewall'', and co-hosts ''Trifecta'' with Stephen Green and Scott Ott. In addition, Whittle has interviewed a number of political personalities as a PJTV.com commentator.
He is a former ''National Review Online'' contributor and has been a guest on the Fox News Channel, The Dennis Miller Show, Sun TV, and national radio programs. His first book, ''Silent America: Essays from a Democracy at War'', was published in 2004. Since 2009, Whittle has been a featured speaker at universities and a number of Republican and Tea Party events throughout the United States. He is also the co-founder of Declaration Entertainment, an independent film studio, and a narrator for Encounter Books.
Whittle was born in New York City to a British stewardess and William Joseph Whittle, a hotel manager. He is the oldest of four children. Whittle spent his youth in Bermuda, where he attended Warwick Academy and Saltus Grammar School, and later moved with his family to south Florida in the early 1970s. At age 13, he began working at the Miami Space Transit Planetarium and was made a console operator by its director Jack Horkheimer after a few months. As a teenager, sometimes called "The Wizard" by co-workers, he wrote and directed the planetarium's light shows.〔Geoghegan, Jane P. "Jane's Corner". ''The Planetarian''. Vol. 3-5. International Society of Planetarium Educators, 1974. (pg. 21)〕
He had long dreamed of becoming a test pilot for the United States Air Force after watching a Thunderbirds air show at Kindley Air Force Base as a child. At age 17, he applied to the U.S. Air Force Academy but failed the preliminary medical exam due to "soft vision".〔 He developed an interest in filmmaking while helping friends make Super 8 short films and formed a short-lived studio, Mindfire Films, Inc., in the late 1970s. He named Mike Jittlov's ''The Wizard of Speed and Time'' as one of his early influences. In 1979, Whittle began attending the University of Florida as a theater major. While there, he wrote and directed the short film ''The Pigeon Hole'' which became a national finalist in the Student Academy Awards competition. Whittle was forced to drop out of college when he did not maintain the required GPA and consequentially lost his financial aid.〔 In the summer of 1983, Whittle was part of a volunteer company of actors, directors and set designers which put on stage performances to sponsor a fundraiser for the Boca Raton Hotel's Caldwell Playhouse. Whittle was one of the show's directors and his scene, "Going Too Far", was called an "understated and entertaining pitch for funds" by the ''Miami Herald''.
