Riley was born and raised in Omaha, NE. He attended Midland University in Fremont, NE where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing and Management with honors. After graduation and for no other reason than they wanted to, he and his girlfriend moved on a whim to Colorado Springs, CO from Omaha. In his free time, Riley enjoys hiking, lifting, cooking, watching Husker and Packer football, and spending time with his girlfriend Lauren and their dog Bubba. They want to raise Bubba as a hiking dog to join them in their journey of visiting every national park in the country and doing every 14’er in Colorado.
