Her collection of photos, Popular Box, is a study of urban art painted on utility boxes, trashcans and other random boxy objects in and around San Diego.
She is one of the pioneers of the online diary, blogging long before "blog" was even a word in the cyber lexicon. Her website, Gigglecam.com, has been visually recording her married life with her husband, Marty, since 1998, back when such a concept was unheard of. The Morrows were among the first to experiment with Internet reality programming. The website once attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors and was the subject of articles in magazines and newspapers, radio and television talk shows. The webcam in their Little Italy loft followed them from the Gaslamp Quarter, and before that, Chicago, available online to anyone who wishes to view. She works for the downtown Internet marketing firm, Ninthlink, where she helps local businesses promote and enhance their services and products online. ChrisMorrow.info, YouTube, MySpace
