A Brazilian native, Raphael came to the USA to pursue a career in film scoring in 2012. His experience as a session musician and record producer back in Brazil opened the door for a position as the lead composer of a film studio - Global Virtual Studios - in the big island of Hawaii. During his seven years in Hawaii, Raphael scored multiple projects. From feature films to documentaries, commercials, and video games. In 2019 Raphael moved to Los Angeles to expend his career.
Raphael’s first feature film Finding Josef was scored in 2014 and since then he has written scores for a wide variety of films including Lost Kites, Time Well Spent and Sequela. He has also composed for TV shows such as Rachael Ray, Dr Phill and Entertainment Tonight.
His Brazilian background and jazz influence mixed with orchestral elements and sound design makes his music a unique combination of colors and sounds.
