An Unexpected Journey — David Riley

Banner for David Riley's column, "An Unexpected Journey"

David Riley works as an illustrator and an artist in-between the labor involved in managing life with Friedrich’s ataxia, which he was diagnosed with at 9 years old. He has a bachelor of arts in graphic design and a master of arts in Biblical studies. With an appreciation and love for the arts as well as a tenacious desire to excel in life, David brings with him the desire to add perspective to what is a life-altering disability. His father was an Army man, so David has made his way around but is now residing in Lynchburg, Virginia, and is in the process of making a place he can call home there.
