More About Raphael
100% Italian born and bred, moved here in 2002. Everyone listening to me believes me to be Portuguese, but I am Italian.
Raphael previously worked as a stone distributor, which allowed him to dive much deeper into the permutations, origins, and properties of materials … common and exotic, natural and manmade.
FAVORITE STYLE: Transitional … bold painted finishes but not garish and definitely natural stones. My favorite being for sure Belvedere quartzite … leathered.
FAVORITE MEALS TO COOK: A tossup between Penne all’Amatriciana and my rum flavored Oreo cookie crust cheesecake (from scratch of course).
FAVORITE RESTAURANT: Maggiano’s Little Italy. Best Tiramisu I've had this side of the ocean.
FAVORITE HOBBIES: Unabashed gamer
