Fine Art and travel photography from our travels and postings around the world.
Long Business Description:

After years of enjoying photography as a hobby, I was encouraged by a couple of CLOs to start selling prints at our embassy. Four years and hundreds of photos later, I have a large portfolio and scores of happy clients. I am currently on my way to Nassau and will be researching online sales and social media marketing as well as improving my portraiture skills. I currently have two websites - Arklahomamuse.com and a sales page on FineArtAmerica.com. Part of coming improvements will be to combine the two and make online purchases easier for my clients.
Please visit my sites and purchase those photos of the places you forgot you loved from your travels!!

The Made Easy series of Travel Guides to Italy feature Rome, Florence and Venice; and help travelers and residents find the most authentically local places to eat, shop, and explore; as well as all the best sights to see in each city.
Long Business Description:

The Made Easy series – Rome Made Easy, Florence Made Easy, and Venice Made Easy – was initially published to widespread acclaim as part of the Open Road Publishing stable of travel titles. Since those heady days, the travel industry has changed dramatically, as has the travel writing business, along with publishing and book selling in general. Bookstore chains have closed, and the survivors have dramatically reduced their shelf space, becoming more selective as to the titles they carry. So despite their quality, there was simply no room left for the Made Easy series in bookstores. A situation that almost put an end to these titles.

However, every challenge also offers an opportunity, and now the series has been reincarnated in eBook format. Though as the author I may be biased, I believe that the Made Easy guides are the better for it. Electronic books do not have to confine themselves to specific editorial restraints, nor do they have a predetermined page limit, which means that this series can contain more information to help travelers have the best time possible in Rome, Florence and Venice. Most importantly, there is less of a time lag between research, writing and publication allowing for the most up-to-date information to be made available to readers. Freed from the constraints of traditional brick and mortar publishing, the Made Easy series now has more information, prepared for travelers in a much more timely manner, all designed to make your next trip to the booted peninsula that much more rewarding ... and easy.

The author, Douglas E. Morris, has had 12 books published by four different publishers, has a travel column in Primo magazine, and regularly pens articles for different periodicals around the world. He has spent over 10 years enjoying la dolce vita in Italy – seven in Rome, two in Florence, and one in the small town of Viterbo. Born in the US, along with residing Italy, he has lived in eleven other countries on three continents over more than two decades.

He has explored the pyramids in Egypt, trekked Alpine peaks in Switzerland and Austria, savored the libertine culture of Denmark, hiked Hadrian’s Wall in northern England, unearthed ancient Roman ruins in Israel, climbed the pyramids of Chichen Itza in the Yucatan, traversed the Great Wall in China, sailed the Fjords of Norway, scaled the Eiffel Tower in Paris, bar hopped down Hooker Hill in Seoul, and witnessed cows being ritualistically slaughtered behind the Süleymaniye Mosque in Istanbul, the streets running red with their blood; as well as many other acts of wild abandon far removed from the realm of everyday life.

As a result of these and many other cross-cultural explorations, Mr. Morris has developed a keen sense of what makes for an authentic travel experience. He has put that insight into each of the Made Easy guides, all to help ensure that you have the most enjoyable local experience possible while in Rome, Florence or Venice.

I am a certified (ACC) life coach supporting individuals living outside their home cultures. My services are primarily provided via phone and Skype. I offer discounts to Foreign Service community members.
Long Business Description:

I offer life coaching to individuals facing the ups and downs of transition. These services primarily include one-on-one support sessions via Skype or phone, email follow-up and periodic check-ins. I provide insight into the culture shock experience, support you in determining your goals in relation to your transition, help you better understand what may be holding you back from experiencing the joys of living around the world and, most importantly, I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to truly be yourself during the process of realizing a life centered around the things you hold most dear. A significant portion of my coaching practice is based on the concepts of mindfulness. To that end, much of my work is dedicated to helping my clients build a better foundation for understanding their thought and emotional patterns, raising awareness of and insight around those patterns and developing strategies for using that awareness for a more fulfilling daily life.

More About My Professional Background: I have been a life coach since I launched World Tree Coaching in November 2013. I have also been a clinical social worker (with over 4,000 hours of direct practice experience), a teacher, trainer and program coordinator. I currently hold the International Coach Federation's Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential. I have a Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin with a focus on Clinical Social Work and Conflict Resolution. I have worked with individuals who are experiencing the challenges of cross-cultural adaptation for over 10 years. My client base is broad and diverse. I have worked with immigrants to the United States, students, trauma survivors, serial expats and Peace Corps volunteers.
