Jonathan oversees the finishing touches of every fire place before it goes out the door. He is also your “go-to-guy” for installation instructions and operation information.

Tenasha Hook

Tenasha is our US Partner looking forward to adding Flare Fires to all her client’s yards. Tenasha loves the outdoors and designing landscapes that make an amazing outdoor oasis.
