Raised by an engineer in a family of 7 siblings, with widgets and gadgets part his every day, it’s no surprise that Mike eventually pursued an engineering degree at N.C. State University.  However, his affinity for fabrication pushed him out from behind a desk and into the superintendent role for a residential construction company at age 23.  In this occupation, he recognized his need for autonomy and quality control, and after 5 years created his own business, Mike Parker Cabinetry, in 1984.

Mike has continued to adapt his engineering prowess and workmanship-of-certainty as Co-Owner of Eidolon Designs since 2001.  Mike breaks new ground by engineering solutions to diverse design challenges on a daily basis; his dedication-of-excellence a personal commitment. (Italic phrases from the writings of David Pye.)

In 1998, Ann and Mike joined their two businesses, broadening Eidolon’s scope and re-confirming the mission of quality, design, and craftsmanship. They further committed in marriage in 2001.
