Animation writer and production manager and visual storyteller. My work has been published in Time Magazine.

Artistic/photographic heroes include Jean Cocteau, Gordon Parks, Angus McBean, Cecil Beaton, Matthew Rolston and anyone on my list of Flickr contacts. :->

Trying to keep contact list manageable, so I add (and retain) contacts who mutually comment on photos.

    Tim Lykowski says:

    "Parlance (aka Shari to us) was a guest at our recent wedding. She - along with many other guests and our professional photographer - snapped dozens of photos of our big day. And guess what? Shari's photos are some of the best taken - BY FAR! She has an amazing eye, and was able to capture so many details that others missed (including the guy we paid). Shari told us that she is taking classes to help her improve upon her obvious talent, which is great. Though to us, the quality of her work is definitely at a professional level. We would hire Shari in a heartbeat (and kinda wish we did)!"

    "Psst. Do you want to know a secret?

    Here it is: parlance is a photographer you will kick yourself for not noticing sooner. From humourous slice-of-life snapshots to polyphonic captures of music, fandom, and friends, her stock will only continue to rise.

    Add her to your contacts if you please, and one day you'll get to say, 'Oh, I totally knew her before she hit it big' :D"
