Squid studied at Pratt Institute and holds a dual master's degree in Photography and Art History. His New York artist experience has been a non-stop adventure. His natural love for bright colors was electrified working with Blue Man Group as they opened their New York show, doing everything from backstage tech to sound operation. 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. These days he can be found working with many parts of the New York performance community doing video design and creative technical support. His personal photographic explorations include experiments with colored lights and paper bags that have expanded to include paper airplanes and other sundry paper objects.
