He was also teaching and lecturing about digital communications at Goldsmiths, University of London. Raph has a BA in Process Design, an MA in Design and Environment and is part of an award-wining artist collective in the field of electronic art.

Raph is currently working as a creative lead for a film production company in London, helping international brands and organisations to engage their target audiences. In his academic research Raphael focused on speculative futuristic concepts for a resilient society, that is to capture and embrace the dynamic nature of the world in order to increase our ability to absorb unforeseen disturbances.
