Recommendations - What Do People Say About Me?

"Sebastien and Pixowl are excellent development partners. He and I worked together while publishing the mobile game "Peanuts: Snoopy’s Town Tale", during which time Sebastien’s development team delivered milestones on-time and of high quality. Sebastien was impeccably organized, demonstrated strong leadership, and natural game design and product ownership. I’d be glad to work with him or his team again." Peter Knudson (Activision)


"I have worked with Sebastien for many years. He was one of our main contractors at Universal Music and more recently, he served as a board member of my last startup. He has always been a great help to me: hard worker, super-implicated, pro-active and always looking for excellency. I really hope I will keep on working with him in the future and I highly recommend him." Xavier De Baillenx (Universal Music, Pretty Fun Therapy, Meetic)


"Sebastien is one of the most trustworthy, hardworking and smart entrepreneurs I had the pleasure to meet. We worked together in many large and successful projects, including the initial launch of Pixowl, and he was always a key player and a man of many hats. I fully recommend Seb and I'm 100% sure he is the kind of person who will make a big difference in any company or team that is lucky enough to have him onboard." Pablo Grandinetti (Experienced Entrepreneur, Advisor, Mentor, Chairman)
