I'm a passionate software architect and developer.

Cloud Solution Architect

I design and develop cloud-native applications, making use of the latest technologies and services. I am particular interested in .NET Core and microservice architectures.


From code to production, I set up CI/CD pipelines, work with container orchestrator Kubernetes and various logging and monitoring tools to enable developers to run their services and applications.


I enjoy growing and leading teams of young as well as experienced developers, defining learning goals together and guiding them with challenges and feedback.

Hi, I’m Sebastian – CTO, cloud solution architect, photographer and travel enthusiast from Hamburg, Germany.
