About Sebastian Brandes

My name is Sebastian Brandes Kraaijenzank and I am a partner in Sensomind, a deep learning startup in the computer vision space focusing on developing industrial solutions for manufacturers primarily in the food industry. Previously, I have worked for Microsoft in various divisions, including the Developer Experience team as a Developer Evangelist, in Microsoft Development Center Copenhagen and in Microsoft Consulting Services.

I am now focusing on combining my experience in developing enterprise software with my passion for artificial intelligence to build cutting-edge solutions for the world’s manufacturers.

On this blog I write about things I come across at work and in my spare time. I try to make my blog posts as fun and interactive as possible by including videos, images and code snippets and I very much encourage the use of the comment field in the bottom of my posts. If you have any questions to the stuff I write about please don’t hesitate to drop a comment.

Sebastian Brandes’ Background

I was born in the year 1989 in Enschede, The Netherlands and I was brought up in Højbjerg, Aarhus, Denmark where I spent the most of my childhood. I currently live in Copenhagen and prior to that I have lived in Mexico for half a year and in Spain for 2 years. That’s where I met my girlfriend Andrea.

I hold a Master of Science in Economics and Quantitative Methods from Carlos III University of Madrid and was offered to continue with on a fully funded PhD scholarship but ended up going for my passion for technology and decided to join Microsoft instead after graduating.

When I’m not messing around with tech stuff, I spend my time on kitesurfing, mountain biking, SCUBA diving, backpacking and watching European football (mostly, AGF and Real Madrid).

I love getting to know new people and if you want to get in contact with me please reach out to me. You can send me an email on the contact page.
