Shimshi is one of the expert magicians in Syfy's reality magic competition series "Wizard Wars." He is the resident magician for Wynn Resort in Las Vegas.

Shimshi was born in 1979 in Tel-Aviv, Israel. His first performance as a magician was at age 13. After seven years of performing magic in Israel, Shimshi moved to Los Angeles and began appearing regularly at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, California. He became a three-time consecutive winner of the Strolling Olympics Award by the Academy of Magical Arts.

In 2004 Shimshi got a phone call requesting him to be the house magician for the Mirage Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. After a two-year run at the Mirage, he spent a year performing his young, cutting edge magic at the World's Greatest Magic Show at the Sahara Casino and then The "V" show at the Planet Hollywood Resort.

Shimshi's magic has taken him around the world — from Princess Grace Theater in Monaco to the Winter Garden Theater in Berlin, Germany, and across Europe and Asia. Shimshi says, "In everything I do, I want to reach for the sky."

In 2008 Shimshi was recognized as the best, out of hundreds of magicians, for the NBC's hit show, "America's Got Talent."

Shimshi now resides in Las Vegas with his wife and daughter.
