Dennis Parker, Designer
My name is Dennis Parker, I am a designer from the United States. I find the beauty and humor in almost everything and I enjoy the life I live. Interior architecture and design is not only my career path but, it is my passion.

I like to say that three things a person should have in life (among other things) is class, style, and wisdom. These three things tie in with others that can make a person more acceptable to the world and be a better person to others. I believe that being kind to others inspires them to be kind to one another. It is kind of contagious.
