About:

If I can’t find the artistic and cultural experiences that I want, I create them. I am also fond of games, coffee and extremely bad puns. Drop me a line via email or twitter for a conversation. dan@danielspencer.ie or DannySideways

Statement:

My purpose is to foster creative community. I have been professionally involved in the arts for over 15 years and have started many exciting creative projects, companies and hubs, including Pegbar, Giant, and Burn After Inking. I am an active practitioner of digital art and broadcast.

2018:

I’m exploring the world of streaming and digital broadcast. My twitch channel is Milk & XYZ . This is a new and challenging venture for me, I broadcast IRL and commentary/reaction videos either with my friends or with my puppet.
