Hello, I'm Dvir

I believe in making a positive impact and helping others succeed. I'm passionate about creating cool stuff, brainstorming fresh ideas, and hanging out with people who inspire me :)

My Story

With over a decade in gaming, I've led as a Game Design Consultant at Playtika and founded Play Games Network. My focus is on innovative product development, strategic planning, and team leadership, all contributing to significant revenue growth.


Since 2019, I've grown Play Games Network, pioneering the integration of AI into gaming mechanics. I've launched successful products like "Bingo for Zoom" and, as a Game Design Consultant at Playtika, collaborated with studios to create innovative game features and optimize workflows.

My education, including an MBA in Technology and Innovation and a degree in Game Design, supplements my professional expertise. I've been honored with a GameIS Award in 2012. I'm passionate about making a positive impact, fostering team unity, and driving innovation.
