Born and raised in the wilds of Callan, Co. Kilkenny in 1982 I always knew I was going to do something art related so I dropped out of school when I was fifteen and worked in various jobs for several years until I had saved up enough money to buy myself a set of turntables. Becoming fascinated with sampling and scratching after seeing Peter Parker cut up a break live at the first Witness festival I started experimenting with a sampler and a Kaoss pad before enrolling in a music course in CSN, Cork. After which I moved home and made my first demo. Since then I’ve made a few more and continued to practice and build my skillsets.

Wax Botanical is the name under which I draw, design, compose music and, more recently, produce music videos.
