Squid studied at Pratt Institute and holds a dual masters degree in Photography and Art History. His New York artist experience has been a non stop adventure. He spent several years working with Blue Man Group as they opened their New York show doing everything from backstage tech to sound operation. Blue Man taught him how hard it really was to be funny and irreverent. Then he shifted into video and began working at Video D Studios with Dennis Diamond. It was here that he was introduced to the amazing world of dance and art video. His many Video D adventures included assisting in the video recording, editing and/or theatrical installation design for amazing artists like Bill Irwin, Elizabeth Streb, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Richard Serra, and Bruce Nauman. After Video D, Squid has continue to work independently with dancers, artists, and musicians who need any sort of video magic. His personal work continues to evolve and make the most of all his experience and skills.
