Originally from New England with a strong work ethic, Joe Kinder eats, sleeps, and obsesses over climbing. He is considered a fanatic and stays true to his personal slogan "ALWAYS PSYCHED!!!" With a degree in fine arts and a need for a creative outlet, Joe partakes in route development as well as filmmaking. He believes there's much more to climbing than the simple act. It's a lifestyle filled with a community and places to visit.
