Rafael met his future wife while attending Berkeley, where they live today with their young son. They are excitedly expecting the arrival of twins. When not at work, Rafael can be found playing with his young son at Berkeley’s Tilden Park, riding a bike over the Berkeley hills, surfing in Bolinas, playing soccer, cooking, gardening, and spending time with family. He and his wife are Ambassadors at the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden.
In addition to his native Portuguese, Rafael speaks Spanish and German – so, as you can see, Rafael is more than ready to receive your phone call when you reach out to Hanke & Co.
