Pronouns: he/him/his

Hometown: Fairplay, Colorado

Focus: Architectural Design 

Bio: Riley is from Fairplay, Colorado, a very small town deep in the Rocky Mountains. Coming out of High School, Riley didn’t know what he wanted to study in College. After his first couple quarters at the UW, he found that Architectural Design was something that he was very passionate about. Therefore he decided to apply for the Architectural Design Major at the end of his Second Year. Coming up to the deadline for the application, he heard about CEP from one of his classmates and recognized it as an alternative way to develop his knowledge about Architectural Design and the other aspects that the major included. He decided to apply  CEP and was accepted into the program! Riley is now in his first year and is really excited for what the future has in store for him!
