Jim Priebe / Liberty, Missouri

Music.  Lights.  Magic.  Jim has a knack for theatrics when he fuses fireworks with his fascination for sound.

Podiatrist by day.  Pyrotechnician by night.  Ellery has what it takes to get your feet moving and your heart pumping from his combustible creations of electrifying beauty.
