Ken Moody Productions' mission is to get families outdoors. Ken stated, "Families need to be spending more quality time outside together, for both their health and emotional well-being. It's a very bonding thing to participate as a team in a camping trip or on any outdoor adventure together. It makes the family unit stronger, and who wouldn't want that?" Ken has been a nature lover and sportsman his entire life, calling Tennessee his home for the last 25 years, after retiring from the Army. He's traveled the world and thinks that East Tennessee is hands down the most beautiful place to explore and adventure.
