Riley grew up in Massachusetts and earned a BS from Cornell University in 2015. He has since taught high school English in Hawaii and Vermont, served with the Peace Corps in Indonesia, photographed for a newspaper in Michigan, and fought wildfires in the western US.

He is currently an MFA candidate in Creative Nonfiction at Oregon State University. When he's not out on the fireline, writing, or making photographs, he can be found running, cooking, backpacking, listening to podcasts, going on road trips, or dozing with his cat, Mosier.

Riley is available for assignments.
