SKILLS
My experience includes a wide variety of design projects, from small brochures and packaging to billboards and tractor-trailer trucks.

Recent projects have included the design of logos and corporate identity programs, point-of-purchase display materials, brochures, advertising materials, packaging, and owner’s manuals.

I earned certificates in Retail Management and Advertising, and a Bachelor's Degree in Art from Bridgewater State College; and a Certificate in Commercial Art from Southeastern Regional Vocational-Technical High School. Before opening Katmandu Studio in 1995, I spent 8 1/2 years as an art director and senior designer at the Rhode Island headquarters of a Fortune 500 corporation, 5 years designing forms for a major New England bank, and 3 1/2 years in retail drugstore advertising.
