The Bar Manager for Sydney’s Spawn Point Small Bar since its opening in 2014, Nathan ‘Kirby’ Binskin has been a guiding light for, and supported many of the individuals and organisations in the industry.
Transitioning from traditional hospitality work at leagues clubs and bars across the inner west of Sydney, Nathan has established himself across the content creation and esports sectors.
For the former, Binskin has helped showcase the regions wealth of talent through Spawn Point and worked personally with Ex Cheez Tv Hosts; Jade and Ryan, kick starting their Twitch careers from his living room.
For the latter, Nathan formerly acted as a manager for esports org, Corvidae – widely known for producing some of the finest players in the region. Whilst with the org, he also managed and molded an all Female Counter Strike team.
Support is a theme that runs deep in Nathan time and time again, from working with the Australian speed running community, hosting local meetups and a panel at OzComicon Sydney or assisting other up and coming gaming/esports bars with tried and true tips on logistics and marketing. From helping fledgling esports orgs with stucture and advice, to charitable work with Generozity, EB Starlight Week and others, including The World’s Greatest Shave, Binskin prides himself on how he can support others. Even though he may not be front and centre at all times, Nathan truly is one of the names to watch in games.
Speaking with MCV Pacific, Nathan said, “Its an honour and a pleasure to be included in this years 30 under 30, It’s always been a goal of mine to help out the communities in the gaming industry as much as i can. I’ve always been a believer of nothing is impossible, Don’t let others define where you want to go. Prove them wrong. Im extremely excited to see where the industry is heading.
