Raffaello has been rowing for La Gondola Providence since the summer of 2008, and is now a seasoned veteran of the city's watercourses. He earned his BS in Aerospace Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, with a minor in Music. His vocal training with various singing groups at WPI pushed his ability and encouraged positive growth.
Hoping to pass along his zeal for mathematics and the sciences, humanities, & arts, Raffaello (under the non-Italian name by which he is known to the rest of the world) guises himself as a physics and pre-engineering educator at Ponaganset High School.
In his free time, Raf may be found pursuing a variety of other interests: reading, blacksmithing, painting, bee-keeping, composing poetry, camping, woodcarving, gardening, cooking, repairing things, researching, and keeping company with Ana, his beautiful wife ( and First Gondolady Bryna's younger sister), and their cat, Sher Khan.
