Attention fireworks lovers: This is your dream job. Fireworks may be your family's tradition on July Fourth, but dazzling explosives are in Jim Souza's blood.
He's a fourth-generation fireworks master and CEO of his family's business, Pyro Spectaculars. You've seen the company's displays at Super Bowls, Olympic ceremonies, Disney World, Kiss concerts, the Statue of Liberty, presidential inaugurations and, of course, Macy's Fourth of July show in New York City, the country's biggest. It is set to conduct 400 major fireworks shows this holiday weekend.
Basically Souza gets paid to create colorful explosions. Sound like fun?
"It's like producing a movie. You try to evoke emotions, drama, pride," he said.
