I find beauty in the aesthetics of art designed to enhance the lives of mankind through the application of science, technology, and innovation. Design has become a way of thought and experience for me. Now as a graduating senior, Interior Design student at Howard University, Jimmie’s focus is to attain a Master’s degree in Architecture. Last Summer, Jimmie studied Interior Design in London, England focusing on Commercial Design, Design Communication, and Business Development. Now as an International designer from Washington, DC, Jimmie is particularly drawn to the opportunity of creating innovative design solutions in a multi-disciplinary team-oriented environment. He began a company called Design Between The Lines with a vision of uniting creative thinkers, artists, designers, innovators, and architects with a common goal of challenging ourselves to make a positive impact on the world through our dedication to design. He believes his creative flair, easy-going personality, technical skills, and personal enthusiasm is what defines his life-long passion for design.

While earning excellent achievements at Howard University, I thrived in an environment fueled by critical thinking and collaboration. My academic endeavors have taught me how to communicate my ideas and have given me a deeper comprehension about the process of design. To solidify my undergraduate experience in Interior Design, I explored the esteemed opportunity to study abroad. I was selected for a full-scholarship to study abroad in London at The American Intercontinental University’s Interior Design Program. I found myself on the other side of the world, surrounded by students and professors from different cultures, full of ideas and enthusiasm. While in London, I challenged myself to think beyond the classroom and to consider creative work in the context of the Central London community or an actual design problem that would be considered foreign to the American culture. In doing so, it allowed me to gain a broader sense of how interior design and architecture play an intricate role in British culture.
