Improvisationally Speaking Episode 15 with Junkyard Dog, Visionary and Entrepreneur, Dr. Joey Rivera
As a youth, Joey Rivera was a high school drop-out and a juvenile delinquent, bouncing in and out of prison. From a troubled childhood, Joey was in and out of the foster care system, and after repeated attempts to run away, he was ordered to join the Marines by a court judge. From that moment, Dr. Joey Rivera’s life and story did an about-face. His is a story of a second chance. A ‘life do-over’ in which a boy - a man, decided to create a life that mattered from a life that didn’t. It’s the story of a person with no initial advantages, grappling his way from nothing, to everything, relying on perseverance, momentum, and leveraging the creativity & intelligence of others.
Joey is the founder of one of the most respected small and growing business in the country, Rivera Group. The Rivera Group developed and provides some of the most cutting-edge intelligence software solutions to the government and to companies around the world. He has spent over 32 years in the military, starting as a Private in the U.S. Marine Corps and rising to the rank of Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel, where Joey is currently assigned to the U.S. Cyber Command, providing expertise in cyber warfare. His passion for helping disabled veterans and youth has him serving on various Boards for such causes in his IN/KY community. He holds a Ph.D. in Software Engineering from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School. In addition to serving as President and CEO, Joey also leads Rivera Group’s R&D team.
