Hi! I’m Raphael, a software engineer in Portland, Maine. I work at Metabase.
Previously, I was a software engineer at Blue Tiger, where I helped build an app for Georgetown University that visualizes the spread of pathogens in the animal world, as well as an app that helps the U.S. government distribute billions of dollars to retired employees.
Before that, I taught philosophy and interdisciplinary creativity at the University of Pennsylvania. And earlier, while getting a PhD in Princeton’s Philosophy department, I taught literature to incarcerated students.
In 2009 I co-founded the public-benefit company OpenHatch. I've given talks at Google and in ten countries, and I published some of my research in this big book.
