I have always been fascinated by Arches, their symmetry and the interplay betwen light and shadow that attends these structures, hallways etc. As well, while visiting a great number of places over the world, the views presented by doors at historic places stimulated such thoughts and provoked my imagination and interests in who built the door, who used it and what were they doing at the time?

As a Professor, teacher and researcher at two major universities of the U.S. I conducted research on the growth & development of facial structures, jaw growth and dental development in children which brought aout many invitations to lecture around the world.

These several books are meant to display my visions as I encountered them in my travels
