My name is Gerik Parmele.

I am a believer, father, husband, multi-media content producer and creative director, photojournalist, and storyteller. I was born on 28 June, 1972 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. I live in Columbia, Missouri, USA. You can also find me here. I’ve told 5 stories. I joined Cowbird on February 23, 2012.

I'm a multimedia visual arts communicator. I work for a church where I do everything I love. I was a newspaper photojournalist and photo editor for 13 years. I'm a photographer based in Columbia, Missouri. I was the photo editor for the Columbia Daily Tribune for five years. I'm an alumnus of the Eddie Adams Workshop XI and the Stan Kalish Picture Editing Workshop (2006). In 2005 I was a member of the speaking faculty at the Southwestern Photojournalism Conference. And someday I will write a bio about my self that doesn't sound so lame.
