Charlie Miles, Owner and Founder of Pioneer Pyrotechnics became interested in fireworks at a young age when his older brother convinced him it would be a good idea to shoot bottle rockets at passing neighborhood cars. Charlie’s parents did not find this amusing and he was “instructed” about the dangers of this type of behavior and fireworks in general. 25 Years later, Charlie still loves to shoot and watch display fireworks. He personally creates, attends and supervises nearly every firework show performed by Pioneer Pyrotechnics.

Charlie received his PGI (Pyrotechnics Guild International) Display Operators Certification in 2012, and he is currently one of only 2 PGI Certified Display Operators in the state of South Carolina.
