Riley is a highly energetic, talented fifteen-year-old with big visions and a real passion to create inclusive technology.
Riley currently attends a fully mainstreamed high school, and once graduated plans to continue to study and work in technology and engineering fields.
Riley’s main interests include discovering new technology, boccia, body boarding and going in the surf with his father. Riley is on the boccia Australian Team and dreams of competing in the Paralympics in the future.
Riley is Psykinetic’s ‘Superhuman’ and is the champion of our eye-controlled communication device.
He considers his two biggest achievements to be raising money for the ‘Make-A-Wish’ foundation every year, and being part of the documentary ‘Becoming Superhuman’ with Psykinetic.
“Psykinetic is life changing! Psykinetic are supporting people with disabilities by developing computer software that will help give independence in their life. Driving the eye controlled buggy was an EPIC experience! Jordan is my mate and my mentor.”
Riley has recently embarked in offering mentoring to others.
“I encourage people to believe in themselves. I mentor people with disabilities. I have explained to people what technology has done for me and what technology can do to support them. Since working with Jordan I felt I could do anything if I put my mind to it. This has made me want to be a mentor for people with disabilities even more.”
If you can imagine it you can create it.
If you can dream it, you can become it.
