Hi - my name is Rafael. I'm originally from Brazil, but have lived in the U.S. since 1990. Together with my wife (Melanie), our 11-yo daughter (Arianna) and our two lovely, well-behaved dogs (Layla & Langley), we've called San Francisco our home since 2012. I'm a risk analyst by day and have started my own data-driven arts startup as well. Melanie's a very talented interior designer. Together, we love exploring our city, and every now and then making trips outside of SF for hiking and overnight trips.
