I am a lover of the outdoors. I love to spend as much time as possible outside with nature.

Growing up in the country I spent all of my time in the woods hunting, hiking camping, fishing, riding motorcycles, anything I could do to stay outside. 

That has continued throughout my life. Currently I enjoy hiking, backpacking, paddling, boating, fishing and Tournament Bass Fishing.

I started and currently run a Facebook group: Michigan Hiking and Backpacking. We currently have over 2,000 members who enjoy the outside of Michigan and surrounding States.

In my past I have run several successful businesses.

Great Lakes Bushcraft, is a Survival School I started in 2012. We taught basic survival, first aid and primitive skills. I sold survival supplies at local Tradeshows in the Tri-State area. After my partner left to teach at another school, I continued the business in sales at Tradeshows.

In 2004 I started Jeff Kindy Photography. I focused on Family portraits and Weddings. I successfully ran that business for 10 years.
