Q&A With Tom
Went over to Canada to meet my family and they are involved with the stunts and special effects in films. Since my early teenage years I’ve always found fireworks fascinating and thought I’d love to do something like that, so I contacted Pyrotex Fireworx when I got home and the rest is history.
I’m luckily enough to work for Pyrotex full time, on my days off I love been a dad and spending it with the kids.
Derby Quad, inflatable headless horse! Do I need to say any more!
My first international display at Courchevel is definitely one I’ll always remember, but it’s got to be Vietnam and my first time in Asia!
Hard work at times, but all of the crew are brilliant, like one big happy family.
I like to think, no matter how tough a show is or the weather conditions, I keep on going and make sure the job is done. I can adapt to any role or help out anywhere if needed.
