Jane Nisselson started her career as a journalist in New York City, reporting on art, design, and architecture for numerous publications. After discovering the MIT Media Lab, she entered its master's program with the intention of writing about its ground breaking work in technology and new media. While earning her M.S. degree at MIT, Nisselson developed an early virtual reality system and created computer animations and visualizations.

Nisselson later returned to journalism as a documentary filmmaker and multimedia designer. Her company, Virtual Beauty NYC, combines multimedia and film to illustrate the process of research, invention, and discovery behind scientific and technological innovations.
