Interview with : Kasper, Owner/Founder/Content Creator on iKasperr.tv or Twitch.tv/iKasperr
Updated on: 12 Dec 2015
We recently had the chance to sit down with Main Menu member Kasper to discuss his career on Twitch along with his upcoming Charity event Kasper and Friends: Quest for the Cause IV. Quest for the Cause IV launches on December 11th and features a wide array of broadcasters supporting the Game Changer Charity. Kasper gave us some insight on why he started the Charity Event along with some background on himself. Check out the full interview below.
STREAMER NEWS: HEY KASPER, COULD YOU PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND TELL US ABOUT YOUR TWITCH CHANNEL?
Kasper: Hi, my name is Daniel – but most people refer to me as Kasper – and I am the owner/founder/content creator on iKasperr.tv or Twitch.tv/iKasperr. I started broadcasting back in the summer of 2012, really looking for an outlet to enjoy video games and to hang out with friends, but I find myself, over 3 years later, doing this as my full time career.
SN: HOW DID YOU FIRST COME ACROSS TWITCH? DID YOU START WANTING TO BE A BROADCASTER? OR CAME ACROSS IT AS A VIEWER?
Kasper: At a young age, I was an active gamer. At the age of 14, I was actually an active member of the CyberAthlete Amateur/Professional League for Pro-Am Call of Duty on the PC. I wasn't anything special, but I did take part in online tournaments and made a bit of a name for myself before they crossed over into Call of Duty 2, which is when my computer could no longer handle it and I had to quit.
But it wasn't too long after that when I was introduced to the world of Twitch from watching various MLG events – even though it was broadcasted through their domain, some of the professional gamers for Starcraft 2 and Halo 3 and Halo Reach would talk about their personal channels – so I started watching them, wanting to be them.
So I definitely started as a viewer, but quickly turned into a streamer myself.
SN: THAT'S REALLY COOL THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ACTIVE IN THE GAMING COMMUNITY FOR SO LONG. ON TOP OF YOUR TWITCH CHANNEL, YOU ARE ALSO PART OF MAIN MENU, HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH THE TEAM?
