Pyrotechnician Mike Tockstein on TV

Television fireworksPyrotechnic expert  Mike Tockstein has years of experience in the fireworks industry.  Since June of 2000, he has been involved with professional fireworks through Pyro Spectaculars, one of the most respected fireworks display companies in the world.  His advanced degrees in Electrical Engineering, experience with rocketry, along with his passion for fireworks, give him insight to all the workings of the world of pyrotechnics

Mike worked on two different episodes of Discovery Channel's "Mythbusters," "Ming-Dynasty Astronaut," in 2004 and "Fireworks Man," in 2010. In 2004, he designed and built the electrical firing system needed to simultaneously ignite 47 high power rocket motors.  In 2010, Mike gave detailed technical guidance on how to accomplish the pyrotechnics related myth.

In season 3 episode 7 (titled "Drumming up Cash") of Spike TV's "Auction Hunters", which aired in 2012, Mike was the on-camera "fireworks expert" going over items that the show's hosts, Ton Jones and Allen Haff, found in a storage unit.
