Chief Creative Officer
The creative heartbeat at the core of Sailinghawk, Riley was born and raised in Durango, Colorado. This vast, rugged, and beautiful landscape informs his every move, whether climbing his favorite pitch or getting creative on your project. He’s equally bound to the outdoors and to his sidekick Lola, an Olde English Bulldog.
Often accused of being obsessed with creative perfection, Riley found his creative niche in videography, photography, and graphic design 15 years ago, founded Sailinghawk in 2015, and continues mastering his craft and bringing a high level of enthusiasm to all projects.
Chief Development Officer
Sailinghawk’s chief people person Mark has an ability to authentically connect with people wherever he goes. From alpine climbing expeditions in South America to playing his guitar on stage, he’s relied on his keen ability to both listen and communicate to bridge divides and get things done.
As a strategic partner who is always on the lookout for how we can best serve our customers, Mark will make sure that your vision remains front and center for our team and ensure that it guides and informs the entire creative process. A Durango, CO native with a sincere love of production and film, Mark joined forces with Sailinghawk Studios in 2019 with a mission to help more people get their stories told and heard.
Chief Marketing Officer
A long and strong track record in business development and marketing makes Chris a perfect fit for Team Sailinghawk. When not on his surfboard or with his family, he is always keeping an eye on the marketplace and which brands are doing what.
Heading up our West Coast HQ, Chris has worked with some of the brightest and best minds in branding and marketing to successfully launch dozens of products and services over the past 15 years. A strategist with an ability to shift from the “clouds to trenches” and roll up his sleeves, Chris will work tirelessly to make sure your best message reaches your desired audience and gets you noticed.
