Giles Thaxton - Author

Giles Thaxton, 29, lives on a big, old wooden boat in Wales. He is really quite green, but any further resemblance to Spud is purely coincidental. With a degree in Engineering, Design and Appropriate Technology from Warwick university he went on to work at the Centre for Alternative Technology in Mid-Wales. He now works as a carpenter in the same area. Giles plays the guitar in a band called Big Bunda and is into his black and white photography.
