Biography edit · view history

Jen Sward trained to be an Electrical Engineer at the University of California, Davis. Her career kicked off as a programmer and project manager specializing in fiber optics and satellite communications for the Navy. That experience quickly paled and Jen left to work for the next 15 years in the video game industry as a manager, project leader, producer and designer at companies such as LucasArts Entertainment and Westwood Studios. She is currently the chair of the Game Software Design and Production department at DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond, Washington, where she instructs in the Bachelor of Science for Real-Time Interactive Simulation program.

Jen’s resume also includes designer of educational toys for children, murals and faux finish painter, helicopter landing pad painter, phone Tarot Card reader, tourist photographer and catering assistant. Her favorite summer job was working in the trail stables in Yosemite Valley.
