Founder & CEO
Noah has over 25 years of experience in the architecture, construction, and development business. He is known in our office for creating a transparent, people-focused culture and being a go-to source of knowledge. Whether it be industry related or random facts, he always has valuable insight on any topic.
Design Project Manager
Kelly has been with Riley Projects since 2014. She has been at every touch point of our projects and is now growing with the team as our Design Project Manager. Her passion for cooking and testing recipes has translated over to finding the perfect blend of ingredients and methods to successfully deliver quality products for our clients.
Karen is the perfect example of “do what you love, love what you do”. She loves being an architect and helping people bring their dreams to life. She’s on a mission, alongside Riley Projects, to create beautiful buildings while solving complex environment and social problems through architecture.
Melinda joined Riley Projects as a designer and is now a licensed architect. In the office she is known for her sense of (dry) humor, attention to detail and thoughtful design. She is also a skater, yogi, valley dweller, and reluctant cat parent turned enthusiast.
Alena is an east coast based multifaceted designer with a passion for sustainable, contemporary, and human centered design. She enjoys seeing projects she has worked on come to life. Outside of work you can find Alena on her motorcycle, probably on her way to buy a latte!
Vanessa grew up wanting to be an architect. Later, she found her real draw to real estate and design was fueled by her love for spaces that produced memories and experiences. It wasn’t directly creating the spaces but being a conduit for people to access them.
Nathaniel has 15 years of construction and production experience. If you want to find him, don’t try the office, he’s either on a jobsite or renovating his new home. At company gatherings, we look to Nathaniel for his engaging stories and hearing about his most recent life adventure.
Reed has a passion for residential construction and has been pursuing it for the past 6 years. His portfolio includes California, Texas, Louisiana, and Puerto Rico. Reed’s proudest accomplishment was serving in the Marine Corps for 4 years after graduating high school.
Shawn has been working in construction for over 12 years. He knew he always enjoyed creating and building so a profession in construction, just made sense. In fact, one of his biggest dreams to is live out in the wilderness in a cabin he has built with his own hands. With his dogs, of course!
Permitting & Procurement Manager
Evan utilizes his formal training in Architectural Drafting & Design and his 10+ years of AEC industry experience to ensure our construction projects are setup for success before they even begin! He believes this all starts with the relationships he has established throughout his career. When he isn't working he enjoys spending time with his wife and 4 kids.
Carl has over 18 years of experience in the design & construction industry. It is important to him to apply his family values to business and build positive and trusting relationships. In addition to his knowledge as an estimator, project manager, CAD operator (and more), he is also an Eagle Scout and Boy Scout of America.
