Raphael is Seattle, born and raised. Having grown up through the changes that this city has undergone, Raphael decided to start a magazine called Human Condition with his good friend Jen Louie, that is centered around providing a platform for emerging artists in Seattle and beyond. Human Condition produces a biannual magazine, web platform, and monthly events that bring art to the community. Raphael's focus is to bring people together, make sure others are heard, and empower those around him.

Where do you take someone new to Seattle?
Whenever someone from out of town comes to visit Seattle I take them to Gasworks at Sunset. It's one of my favorite spots in the city!
What do you do to decompress from work?
To decompress from work I like to take bike rides down to Discovery Park in Magnolia with close friends.
