In 2010, she revived her art and gaming career at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood, California by starting DrawMelt (a life drawing class with cosplay models) and DnDMelt (a gaming community focused around Dungeons and Dragons).

In April 2017, Phoenix took over from Matthew Mercer as host of the Game Master Tips web series on Geek & Sundry's YouTube channel,[4] which discusses the role of the Dungeon Master within Dungeons and Dragons.

She also works part-time creating box art for The Loyal Subjects, has created art for musical acts such as Jason Charles Miller and DirtyLvrs, and paints large commissions. She illustrated Machinations of the Space Princess, a tabletop roleplaying game by James Desborough.

Actress & Model: Phoenix has accepted projects that appeal to her interests in gaming and fetish fashion, cosplaying characters from various D&D games and modeling in latex and leather. Notable projects include Pen, Paper & Laser Guns and her role in co-developing the gaming web series I Hit It With My Axe, which was distributed through online magazine The Escapist.[3][6] In 2013, she appeared in the Javier Grillo-Marxuach's short film Minotaur.[7]

Gaming: Phoenix founded DnDMelt at Meltdown Comics in October 2011, where she was later dubbed "The Queen of D&D".[8] Phoenix also co-created Maze Arcana. In addition to supporting the Los Angeles Dungeons & Dragons Meetup,[9] Maze Arcana live streams weekly Dungeons and Dragons games on the Maze Arcana and DnD Twitch channels. Here, Phoenix acts as Dungeon Master for an all-female cast in Sirens of the Realms,[10] and previously acted as DM for episodes of Fury's Reach alongside Maze Arcana co-creator Ruty Rutenberg.

The second season ended with Phoenix interviewing the host of the first season, Matthew Mercer, in December 2017.[13]

In a 2006 report for the news website AlterNet the journalist Annalee Newitz referred to her as "the sort of person who has the education and resources to choose from many careers and has chosen this one because she likes it".[23]
