He has 21 years of experience in gaming & tech, signing multi-million dollar deals with top IP owners (NBC-U, Hasbro, Paramount, MARS, Sony, MGM), 100+ game developers worldwide, and leading media platforms (Apple Arcade, Netflix, Google, Microsoft Windows, Amazon). Asi’s entrepreneurial background helped him to build a stellar team of BD professionals in NYC, Barcelona, and Seoul, and one of the strongest partners’ network a game publisher could hope for.

In 2011, he was named one of the “Digital 25: Leaders in Emerging Entertainment” by Variety and the Producers Guild of America (PGA) for his work with videogames for social impact. He develops programs to raise the quality and influence of social impact games and produces the Annual Games for Change Festival, dubbed “the Sundance of Video Games.”

Asi works with organizations that are developing digital games to further their mission and has consulted with USAID, The World Bank, and the American Museum of Natural History. Prior to joining Games for Change, Asi worked with Newsweek Digital to create an interactive gaming portfolio based on the magazine’s news content and collaborated with McCann Erickson/MRM Worldwide to use digital games for brand engagement. He also co-founded Impact Games in Pittsburgh and, while there, led the creation of two groundbreaking platforms: PeaceMaker and Play the News. Asi has spoken and lectured around the world and is the winner of numerous awards, including the Knight Foundation News Game Award, the University of Southern California’s “Reinventing Public Diplomacy through Games,” and four awards with the Israel Advertising Association.
