Riley is originally from Boston, MA but has been calling the small town of Barrington, IL home for the last 18 years. He graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2015 with a Bachelor's Degree in Atmospheric Science.
He's a huge hockey and baseball fan, specifically the Cubs and the Blackhawks.
Ever since high school, he's been obsessed with the idea of chasing tornadoes and learning about them. It's that passion that took him to Mizzou to obtain a degree in Meteorology. While at Mizzou, he was an intern for KMIZ-17 where he discovered that being a Meteorologist was something he wanted to do for the rest of his life.
He looks forward to waking up every morning loving the job he has and if he's not in the studio, you can always find me on the nearest golf course.
