Riley Walz

Hey! I'm Riley. I'm a distance runner, live in New York, and created Routeshuffle. I'm also a SWE intern at Tendies.

Projects

  • Routeshuffle, a random route generator for runners, walkers and cyclists.
  • Spotipaid: how much does Spotify pay artists for your individual streams?
  • Musical Roulette: a live, IRL, group game where everyone logs in with Spotify on their device. A song plays and everyone guesses who in the group's song it is. (beta, works but not polished)
  • Political Streets: is your street Republican or Democratic? Cook PVI index but at the street level.

Shenanigans

  • Made a fake candidate for U.S. Congress whose account got verified on Twitter, which led to Twitter and Ballotpedia improving their candidate vetting process. (link)
  • Bought a 0.5 mile portion of a historical railroad tract at a tax lien auction to learn about real estate. In the process of turning it into a hiking path. (link)
  • Received a scholarship to attend WWDC in 2019 after learning Swift in a week. (link)

Previously

  • a technical production intern for MSCHF.
