Philippe Girard from "Pyros" stars in the Weather Channel reality series. He is the head pyrotech at Groupe Fiatlux-Ampleman (GFA), one of Canada's most sought-after pyro companies. He says, "What's the difference between a pyromaniac and a pyrotech? Pyromaniacs get arrested. We get paid."

Philippe Girard knows that staying successful and scoring the biggest contracts in the world is all about being the best and the boldest and sometimes, this also means being the craziest. He has recently garnered a lucrative contract with an African company that takes him into some of the most dangerous pyrotechnic territory in the world.

"In Africa ... it's not safety first ... it's safety third: first money, then firepower, and finally, safety."

This often means driving trucks packed full of explosives through crowded cities and using old-school techniques such as hand-firing with torches because the safer technology isn't available. Philippe will do whatever is necessary to ensure the crowd and the client is satisfied with the show.

Current Residence: Montreal, Quebec, Canada
