Johnnie Stark
I am an Associate Professor in Interior Design in the College of Visual Arts and Design, currently serving as the ID program coordinator. In addition to an undergraduate degree in education and sociology from Trinity University, I received undergraduate and graduate degrees in design from UNT. I served in both lecturer and adjunct capacities and joined as a full-time faculty in 2005.  I am a registered interior designer in the State of Texas with over twenty years of commercial project experience including furnishings dealerships, interior and architectural firms, program management for public schools, and sales.  During the 1990's, I designed two commercial upholstery collections for ANZEA Textiles, headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas. I was a charter member of the organizing group for the North Texas Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, and qualified as a LEED accredited professional in 2004. My current research interest is in the intersection of sustainable design and interior design education and practice. I am continually searching for multidisciplinary opportunities to analyze and communicate sustainability issues.
