Roman Rivas

IT Help Desk Specialist

Starting at the age of 12, Roman would break, and then repair his home PC, just to see how it worked. That curiosity fuels him to this day—now he helps fix technology issues at Murraysmith, where he makes good use of his ability to concisely relay information to non-technical users.


Roman loves learning about cyber security. If he’s not at his desk troubleshooting technology problems, he may be out participating in a cyber security capture the flag event, a competition between security professionals and/or students.

What do you find most rewarding about your work? I get to help move our field into the future, as well as help others learn more about my favorite pastime.

What would surprise people about you? Even though I may show up soaked from the rain, frozen from the cold, or burnt from the sun, I would never trade my motorcycle for a car.

Best pace to be when you’re not working: Wilderness
