Riley grew up trying to imitate funny voices he heard on television. After watching the “Police Academy” movies, he added odd noises to his repertoire. He went on to study theatre arts at the University of Northern Iowa, where he met like-minded individuals with plenty of talent and vision. Those same individuals have been encouraging Riley ever since by bringing him on to projects like Sissy’s Sircus Drag and Burlesque Troupe, Cedar Falls Stand-up Comedy, and now Not Without My Boswell. In Not Without My Boswell, Riley has finally found a place that welcomes his fascination with Foley work. He records many of the effects in his current home with the help his sound partner Evie Lee. Riley is also currently working toward making people laugh through his stand-up comedy work.
