As a person who has been passionate about fireworks since I was a kid, I could not wait to bring my daughter to her very first professional firework show. Long story short, we had a terrible experience, which left my daughter disappointed and me heartbroken. Doing what any good father would do, I decided to take it into my own hands.
The next morning, I reached out to a local company and started my journey to become a licensed pyrotechnician. My plan was to get my license so that I could put on the big firework show my daughter deserved to see. As I began the process, I never had the intention of turning it into a business. That was, until it happened......
Our backyard 4th of July show had become something quite spectacular. Every year it seemed to just get bigger and more elaborate. On July 4th, 2018, my wife and I decided to use our annual 4th of July show to make a surprise announcement of our 2nd miracle baby. By this time, our simple backyard show has grown into a full-blown pyro musical featuring songs from Disney's "Wishes" soundtrack as well as "Let It Go" from Frozen.
As the end of the show neared, and all of our family and friends were captivated, the music subtly announced our pregnancy. In an instant, a barrage of pink and blue fireworks filled the sky as everyone tried to grasp what was happening. Luckily, my sister captured the moment on film perfectly.
I have since watched that clip more times than I can count. It was one of the best moments of my life, and a feeling that I will never forget. It is that feeling that made me decide to turn my passion for fireworks into a business. That feeling of pure joy and happiness is amazing, and something I want to share with as many people as possible... "One colorful explosion at a time" - Frank Terzino Jr

With study in Fashion and a degree in Marketing, Tori took her talents from the runway to the skies. Her unique vision and non-pyrotechnic perspective have helped PyroStar Entertainment quickly establish itself as the future of display fireworks in America.
Her role as creative director can be seen in every show and her "nothing but extraordinary" attitude is what will continue to propel PyroStar to the top of the industry.
When she is not designing shows, running day to day operations or building mortar racks, she is a homeschool mother of two children.
Behind the scenes, our crews are made up of an eclectic group of people ranging from Electricians and Veterinarians to Stay at Home Moms & Estheticians.
These people give up their weekends, holidays, and family time. They will spend 10 hours in sweltering heat, carrying 50-pound mortar racks and handling dangerous explosives just to set up 15-minute fireworks show... Then they have to turn around and spend another 3 hours cleaning it all up.
But that sound of applause immediately after the show, and knowing that they helped to bring smiles to so many people's faces, makes it all worth it. These people are the life blood of the fireworks industry, and they are the real TEAM PYROSTAR!
