I'm here to create


My name is Sebastian Kister and I am here to create. I worked as product manager web and mobile applications for a Munich based cloud provider focussing on IT-security and privacy-by-design for four years. In February 2017 I switched back to entertainment thus I currently work as a product owner for waipu.tv.

I've been a music teacher for 11 years, released more than 40 publications and I've spoken on numerous congresses about my work and articles that circle around digitalization of didactics and related UX/UI topics.

Yet, music has always accompanied my way. I've been playing the guitar and bass in quite a number of bands from ranging from classical music to metal and I played countless shows in the last 15 years including an European tour in 2011 following some festival shows until 2016. 2014 Rock Hard Magazine claimed my band Symbolic probably "best in genre" and topped it with an amazing 8,5 / 10 rating.

When I started to work in bands with 13 years I was always glad to bring it to the next level. One step at a time. The latest album Omnidescent is available world wide through Remission Records. 2014 Rock Hard Magazine claimed Omnidescent "probably best in genre" 2014 and topped it with an amazing 8,5 / 10 rating while Legacy published a 2 page interview with 13/15, The Pit 9,5/10 and Stormbringer 4/5. I also had the honors to join the progressive band Dante on the bass for their latest album When we were beautiful

List of publications

As a UX/UI expert and former teacher with an academic background in didactics I aim to give insights and show possibilities to enhance teaching by the use of software. Introducing modern, well designed software can help to individualize a simple lesson to such a degree that we can talk about coaching.
