“There are few people who are truly ‘renaissance ‘men...but Anthony Thaxton’s imagination, artistic vision, and creativity make him one of them. He is the most diversely talented and immensely gifted person I have ever worked with. He is one of the most thoughtful and personable individuals around. I savor every opportunity I have to work with him.”
