INTEL: Xyience signs a rock star, Downtown Films moves and Puck plans an appearance

Xyience, the Las Vegas-based energy drink maker, has signed one of the elite rock climbers in the world to help pitch its product. His name is Joe Kinder, a 33-year-old known for his impressive roster of first ascents and route development.

He majored in painting at the Maine College of Art in Portland before becoming a rock-climbing rock star.
