A LITTLE 'BOUT ME
Hey, it’s me. Your new best friend. If you’re reading this it’s either because you got really bored one day and stumbled across it or I got famous and now I’m cool- either way I’m glad you’re here.
If you haven't already figured out, my name's Riley. I'm a firm believer of good music, naps & the Big Man upstairs. I’m also an aspiring mattress tester & dr. Pepper icee enthusiast. In my brain movie I'm a DJ who doubles as a back up singer/dancer for Beyonce, but here in this movie, I'm just a 22-year-old who has no idea what's going on. I like making videos. Taking pictures. documenting LIFE.
You know that weird kid in school who knew all the random facts about movies and songs & spent their free time watching casts interviews? Knew every line to every movie they’ve ever seen and quoted them at inappropriate times? that’s me. I’m your weird kid from high school. I’m obsessed with music and movies so documenting real life moments through video is the closest thing I’ll ever be to Stephen Spielberg and I’m (semi) ok with it.
I love reading and writing and conspiracy theories (AVRIL LAVIGNE WAS REPLACED BY A DOPPELGÄNGER- CHANGE MY MIND). I can talk to you for days about books, songs, tv shows and movies. I'm terrified of horror movies but also have an unhealthy obsession with crime shows (yes, we exist). You can find me binge watching Criminal Minds or SVU on the daily. I like to think of myself as an honorary member of the BAU. My dream job would be a music supervisor, cinematographer or FBI agent.
I am a recent USAO college graduate. I have my Bachelor of Arts in Communication and a minor in Criminal Justice (thank you ION television WHOOP WHOOP). I also received my associates degree in Psychology before transferring. I used to work at a bank before Youtube and school taught me how to use all the camera and adobe tools. A few trial and errors, LOTS of practice and learning and VOLIÀ a business woman was born.
On a real note, I'm still figuring things out. Life, videography, photography. All the above. I have an urge to travel; see this beautiful place God has created. Maybe along the way learn a few things, make a few friends and figure out why I'm here. I hope you'll stick around and see what happens.
