Joel Kinstle blames the neighbor kid for introducing him to gaming at an early age, never expecting his sad parade of dead elves to lead to legitimate employment. His winding career path includes such notable highlights as academic probationer, summer camp nurse, infants and women’s wear clerk, U.S. Senatorial candidate, envelope factory janitor, corporate trainer, beer fetcher, graphic designer, nanny of four, and professional pig distracter.
Joel’s first Pinnacle project was the graphic design and layout for Necessary Evil: Explorer’s Edition, and he continues to serve Pinnacle [no, it’s not a cookbook] as best as he can. When free from the pixel mines, he’s been known to play games, watch movies, and otherwise engage in frivolous pursuits, including a recent peculiar interest in canning. If you ask nice, he’ll probably let you try the pickled grapes.
