Riley reportedly worked as a consultant to help tech startups grow revenue using marketing and development. Riley hails from Boston, Massachusetts, and has a dual degree from Boston University.

Riley has notoriously private about his personal life and likes to keep it that way.

Alexandria’s Family Opens Up About her Fiancé!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s family adores Riley and has nothing but good things to say about him. In an early interview in 2019, Alexandria’s mother Blanca described Riley as the most loving, supporting person she has ever seen while adding how he helped her tremendously during the election. One of their common friends once said that the couple is so low-key that even some of their friends did not know that they were together until several years after they had all graduated from college. It was further claimed that while people see how glamorous she is, the two were not two glamorous people and described them as two “awkward, supersmart, like-to-talk-about-issues kind of people that met through this super-wonky, nerdy thing”.

Blanca went on to say how the two have been together for more than four years after they reconnected after a college breakup, and she knows that they love children and they do very well with children from the family. Like a doting mother, Blanca, too, admitted that she hopes the two get married soon while saying that they haven’t told her anything about their plans. Now that Alexandra herself has confirmed that they are engaged, the two will soon walk down the aisle. We are yet to get any additional details about it.
