Riley is fascinated by the client experience. More importantly, how can it be perfected? How can he consistently and authentically design memorable moments for his clients? As a Premium DJ, Host, Emcee and one of the Midwest’s only Event Experience Consultants, Riley’s expansive clientele includes corporate hospitality groups, real estate agencies, wealth advisors, performance coaches, and wedding/event professionals all across the Midwest.
After 14 years in the event industry as a DJ, 350+ weddings and 400+ private events, Riley can say with 100 percent certainty that his passion and purpose is to elevate the experience for his family, friends and clients. Without a doubt he was born for this role.
Riley continues to shape his reputation for being an intangibility expert. He prides himself in teaching others how to sell an experience, not a product. Riley understood early on in his career that if he was going to thrive in this industry, he had to rise above the competition in every way possible.
His current endeavors include: Strategic Production Partner at Montgomery Companies and host of The Summit; co-founder of Iowa’s only Wedding Experience; featured speaker at Elevate Leadership University; founder of “Capture the Essence” wedding workshop; exclusive DJ, Host and Emcee for Lululemon, Iowa City; In-House DJ for Ashton Hill, Cedar Rapids and Galena; No Foot Too Small Foundation and A Night To Shine – Tim Tebow Foundation.
Riley thrives on keeping busy in his professional world but his private life has a much deeper meaning. He married his high school sweetheart, Melissa, seven years ago. He’s also a proud father of four-year-old twin toddlers, Iylah and Asher.
