Funny is in his genes/jeans...!
Being multiracial in the 70's & 80's was difficult. Neither race accepted him. Squishy was an outsider. This inability to "fit in" led Squishy to attempt suicide, become a high school dropout, alcoholic, crack & meth addict and was incarcerated for a brief period. Squishy has constantly battled with manic depression (bipolar disorder). He was officially diagnosed in his late teens.
Squishy eventually obtained his G.E.D., then graduated from Washburn University, with a Bachelor's Degree in Clinical Psychology. 2 years later, Squishy received his Master's Degree from the University of Kansas.
Since 1997, Squishy has been one of the foremost experts in working with "Multiracial Children and Families." April 14-16 2000, Squishy was honored to be the keynote speaker at the "Pan Collegiate Conference on the Mixed Race Experience" at Harvard University as well as speaker at Wellesley College.
In 2003, Squishy found out he had Type 2 diabetes, which drastically altered his future plans. Squishy decided to give up his Mental Health Practice and pursue his dream of speaking full-time.
Squishy presently performs over 40 weeks annually. He delivers keynote speeches, provides motivational & inspirational speaking and conducts cultural diversity in-service training at high schools, colleges, corporations, resorts, and holiday events. Squishy is booked in more than 20 national comedy clubs each year.
Most performances are rated "PG-13" with some adult content. Mature topics but not offensive. However, Squishy can tailor his performance, speech, or presentation to be 100% CLEAN.
