River was born in Cypress, Texas and lived there his whole life until just a few days ago he finally moved to Kyle, Texas his girlfriend. As a nature lover his long term goal is to buy land in Colorado big enough for his brothers and him to live on if they wish to join. After graduating from Cypress Woods High School River immediately applied to the Austin Fire Academy and got accepted. Starting in August he will be actively working toward a firefighting certification with the end goal of being a smoke jumper.
River is a huge fan of reading and writing, but he also enjoys many outdoor activities. Frisbee and hiking with his brothers are among his favorites, along with kayaking Lady Bird Lake.
