Huggable Riot was formed in 2015 by Amy Anderson and Hunter Larrison on the notion that, after all the classes and programs are done, the best way to learn to do something is to go out and do it. We are made up of writers, actors, musicians, directors, and producers - all brought together under the solitary goal of making each project we undertake better than the one before.
