Self Portrait owner of Ignite Insight Design

Tim Fleenor

I have enjoyed Design and creating since I was young, Although I didn't realize it until later. From Legos, drawings, and building models (usually with my own twist) as a child, to customizing my bikes, cars, motorcycles, and trucks as a teen and into early adult hood, I was always creative & changing things from how they were to how I wanted them. I started training to be at technician at first on cars and then on boats not because I wanted to fix what was broken, but because I wanted to reshape what I had into my own.
