Raphael completed a BA (Hons) Event Management degree at BIMM London in 2018. During his course, he interned for various companies and festivals such as Nuclear Blast Records, United Talent, Desertfest, and Slam Dunk.
Since graduating, he has found work as Business Operations Assistant at Phantom Music Management, working closely with legendary classic metallers Iron Maiden! His role is to assist in developing the Iron Maiden brand through the creation of merchandising and any audio or audiovisual products the band or Phantom might release, as well as helping protect the brand from counterfeit.
“London has always been a special place to me, and BIMM made it even more incredible” says Raphael.
“I started to study at BIMM to be as close as possible to the Rock and Metal scene, but also in the hope of finding a job in the music industry within the capital. Beyond all the knowledge I gathered over three years at BIMM, the most important thing I was able to get out of all the internships and volunteering experiences was a strong network and industry knowledge which I’m still using today.”
