Ralph M. Rivera

Ralph M. RiveraRalph M. Rivera, Rahvalor's co-founder, is a web developer who has been in the business of marketing, media, and technology for nearly two decades. With a Bachelor's degree in Film & Broadcast, Ralph began his career in visual effects for feature films and corporate media.

As the Internet evolved, emerging technology led Ralph from New York to New Jersey to work for New Jersey Press and Broadcast where he was a senior member of the team responsible for adapting their traditional media properties to the internet (The Asbury Park Press, The Home News and Tribune, New Jersey 101.5 FM, etc.). While working for NJP&B, Ralph became a founding member of New Jersey's first Internet Service Provider and one of New Jersey's first web development agencies.

After both properties gained value and were purchased by Gannett, Ralph moved on to act as Vice President of a small production boutique in New Jersey, but as the 90's drew to a close, Ralph's true passion lay in bringing the benefits of the web and technology to small businesses shut out by the expense of doing business with large New York City area agencies.

In 1999, he co-founded Rahvalor Interactive with his wife Carol Lynn Rivera. As Lead Developer at Rahvalor and a Microsoft Certified Professional, he oversees Rahvalor's team of programmers and developers. His strategic thinking and immersion in technology make him an expert consultant for businesses looking to maximize the potential of the internet.

He is also an educator, teaching web development at the college level in New York City.
