Frank Parker

Interior Design AutoCAD Manager
BFA in Interior Design with specialization in Commercial Interior Design

Frank is fascinated by the way a project comes together, from initial napkin sketches to the final working/construction drawings he creates; different aspects, people’s experiences and opinions all collaborate to form on cohesive design. Having an eye for detail, he notices the small things; if a junction looks awkward or the window placement is off he strives to have it done better!
