Innovation Seeker & Design Lover

I'm Sebastian – a multi-disciplinary marketing strategist with a proclivity for design and user experience. I am a self-taught designer, entrepreneur, and currently CMO at ARK Invest.

I was a co-founder of Regattable Inc, a startup trying to redefine the sailing sport, and an early investor in Nautilus Labs Inc, a tech company building analytics and AI solutions to advance the efficiency of ocean commerce.

Over the years, I combined my engineering and design skills with a clear sense of marketing and business strategies. I lived, studied, and worked in Munich, Stockholm, Syracuse, and now New York City (for the second time).

I enjoy working at interdisciplinary crossroads where beautiful things happen and new ideas come to life, always striving for perfection.
