Riley, who has extensive experience across all project phases, focuses on field observation during construction administration. He enjoys collaborating with contractors to resolve issues and ensure that the final results meet the client’s expectations.
Before joining SGA, Riley worked at Elkus Manfredi Architects in the role of a project architect. During his nearly 10 years at that firm, he worked his way up on a wide range of commissions, including mixed-use properties, sports stadiums, flagship retail, laboratories, and senior-living environments. His earlier career was in hotel and restaurant management, but he always had his eye on architecture.
Following a six-year tenure at a major resort casino on The Las Vegas Strip, Riley relocated to earn a Bachelor of Architecture and Master of Science in Architecture from Iowa State University. Outside of the office, he focuses on personal fitness and honing his skills as a chef by cooking elaborate meals for guests. Riley enjoys traveling to Florida and California and looks forward to widening his horizons across the Pacific. As for Vegas? He’ll pass.
