I'm Riley. I make documentaries. 

When asked what I make documentaries about, my answer is simple: people. To further specify would feel inadequate to the variety of incredible human beings on this planet. 

My award-winning short docs have screened at festivals across the U.S. and internationally, and have appeared on The New York Times  — as part of their Op Doc and Made with Kickstarter series — as well as Vimeo Staff PicksShort of the WeekThe New YorkerThe Atlantic, and National Geographic.

Based in Brooklyn, NY, I freelance as a director and editor, am a member of the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective, and previously interned at Maysles Films with documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles.
