Born in St. Louis and raised in Austin, Texas, the young actor has been showcasing his natural talent since the age of seven.

Tristan's latest lead role in the independent horror film, The Seventh Day, continues his streak of starring in projects in the genre. He has also held several principal roles in national commercials, music videos, and print-modeling. He has an older sister, Charlotte Delaney Riggs, who is also an actor.
Tristan enjoys volunteering at a local farm, tending to chickens, longhorns, and donkeys. A natural-born leader, Tristan rose to the rank of First Class Scout in Scouts BSA in less than a year while also serving in various leadership roles.

Above all, Tristan is curious to try new things and is fearless.
