In the mid 1980s, CYCLE began his intrigue with graffiti by taking marker tags. It wasn't until the late 80s and early 90s, while away at college in Washington DC ,that he started to seriously piece.

He is credited with helping get the DC graffiti scene off the ground and co-founded the DC Hall of Fame. During his time in DC, he went all-city and also started doing freights.

During the 1990s, he linked up with Lady Pink, Smith and others, and began doing large scale wall productions, all the while still doing freights.

In 1996, he went to graduate school in San Francisco where he met Doze. Cycle then went all-city in San Francisco with everything from tags to full blown productions. After graduate school, he moved back east, continuing large-scale productions with Pink and Smith.

Cycle no longer does freights, but he continues to be creative doing shows and appealing to the masses.
