Chris Wood is a climate activist, skeptic, philosopher, grandfather and computer programmer.
He marched with Rock against Racism in the 1970’s, hitch-hiked around Europe and worked as a despatch rider before becoming a self taught computer programmer.
Chris has worked with Exeter’s youth offending team, been a children’s advocate and, on occasion, has jumped out of perfectly fine aeroplanes.
He has also studied philosophy and psychology at Oxford as a mature student.
His software development company had offices in Surrey and California until the family moved to Devon at the turn of the millennium for a radical life change.
