She provided examples of work from all phases and disciplines involved, including: • Motion Graphics • Visualization • Virtual City Planning • Designing Game Assets Her career also included forays working as a babysitter, running a snack bar, as a computer programmer, a system administrator, a toy sales person, and an illustrator. Her current work involves collaborating on Participatory Virtual Theatre productions over the Internet with Joseph Geigel, Professor of Computer Science, B.
