"Creativity and Experience"

It comes down to creativity and experience.

If creativity and experience is what you seek in your next employee, you have landed on the right page!

Creativity comes from tossing all assumptions aside and adding knowledge of the construction process, the needs of the project with the dreams of the client; merged into a finished structure.

My experience consists of twenty-seven plus years of commercial and residential building, landscape design and construction. I have designed over 1400 residential projects built in the surrounding areas of Tampa Bay. I have participated on several award winning projects across Florida. In addition I have enjoyed the opportunity to work for some of the leading architects of Florida: Edward Hillstrom AIA a Taliesin Fellowship member and international renowned landscape architect Peter Burner ASLA.

My name is Thomas Parker. I am seeking a full time position as a CAD designer / Draftsman or as an Entry Level Web Developer. In addition I would be interested in other positions that my skills may present themselves valid and benefit for you.

I am a skilled AutoCADD professional with a keen eye for inventive design and comprehensive understanding of Florida construction codes and regulations. With more than 14 years of Computer-Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) and 27 years construction experience backed by an extensive track record of achievement in residential architecture and landscape design, I have the expertise and know-how to ensure your projects meet the exacting quality, cost, and scheduling standards your customers expect. The resume highlights some of my key strengths and achievements, including:
