Born in 1957 in north-west Manhattan, SNAKE1 took part in the tag movement inspired by its pioneer TAKI183. From 1970 onwards, he was writing on urban fixtures and urban transport together with STITCH1, co-founder of the group Writers' Corner 188.

His work and career have been recounted by Roger Gastman in the documentary Wall Writers
