Mary Ann’s Answer
Because you called out an interest in entertainment technology and an interest in video games and art, you might consider looking into jobs with an animation company like Disney or Pixar and gaming companies like Electronic Arts. And, as technology has become a part of everything we do, art museums might have an opportunity where you could digitize their collections and even create some fun games to help people learn about art over the internet.
You might consider doing a little research at the Walt Disney Imagineering website (https://sites.disney.com/waltdisneyimagineering/) to learn more about the kind of work they do there. Maybe it will spark an interest for something specific and help you hone in on something.
Also, as you're in New York, maybe there are opportunities to do something on Broadway. As the world changes, technology and multimedia are showing up in new places like backgrounds for plays and multimedia displays as a background at concerts.
