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 Picks, Short of the Week, The New Yorker, The 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. I am currently working on my first feature documentary, Vestibule, a first-person essay dance film about sexual health and agency.
