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!!

I help expat partners *level up* their English skills to confidently navigate globally-mobile lives and careers. While many foreign-born spouses are conversationally fluent in English, they feel insecure about their formal writing skills and professional vocabulary.
I offer one-on-one *personalized* online tutoring to help motivated global nomads – especially “trailing spouses” like myself – expand their vocabulary and perfect their writing so they feel empowered to pursue their career goals...wherever they happen to be living in the world.
I specialize in:
*Advanced English Fluency*
*Business & Academic Writing*
My years of experience and encouraging teaching style can give you the skills and confidence you need to better integrate into the global community and apply for a broader range of jobs.
My tutoring sessions are conveniently offered online at times that work for your schedule. Please contact me for a friendly, free video chat to get started!

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.
Pavlov Financial Planning was started in 2010 to serve common people in uncommon ways. We feel the pain of our generation struggling to find quality financial advice at an affordable price while being sold unnecessary financial products or being pushed away by large wealth management firms. This is why we dedicate ourselves to provide fee-only financial planning for young professionals who want to have comprehensive understanding of their finances, are ready to get their finances in order to start building wealth and meet their goals, and welcome a little nudge to take action from time to time.

I am your GPS, and you are the driver. With my help, you will be able to get to where you want to be.
