Thanks for reading my Gamasutra blog, I am a senior producer at Ubisoft, and more specifically its Partners division in Paris. Before that, I also worked in both external and internal development at Cryo, Dreamcatcher and Game Consulting. The last notable games I produced include Call of Juarez Gunslinger, Might & Magic Heroes VI, and the hd versions of Might & Magic Clash of Heroes.
