Roxanne Goldberg

Course Author

Roxanne Goldberg is an imaginative and meticulous writer, a grammar guru, and a formatting expert. A graduate of The George Washington University with a degree in art history, Roxanne specializes in writing about art and all things related to aesthetics. Her experience further extends to a range of topics, from whiskey to romance, and from home remedies to executive leadership. Raised by an interior designer in the Southwest United States, Roxanne grew up climbing around stone yards, picking out paint samples, and sitting in bathtubs on interior design showroom floors. Her own home in Berlin is decorated in a luminous mid-century modern style with plenty of personal touches related to her travels and passions for art, literature, cooking, and yoga.

When Roxanne is not developing interior decorating courses, she can be found writing her own short stories of the past, present, and future.
