Tara Modlin-Maurizi

Fireworks Sports Marketing president and founder, Tara Modlin has been producing events since 2000.  She started Fireworks Sports Marketing  after her first major ice show production at Madison Square Garden.  She has been to five Olympic games representing United States Olympic Team members including Johnny Weir, Olympic medalists Danell Leyva and Elana Meyers as well as many others.  

Modlin graduated from the University of Pennsylvania. Immediately after college she worked for National Media Group.  Her experience at the  sports marketing company exposed her to NBA sponsorship negotiations  and executing the All Star Game. She would later start her own firm  using that experience along with her certification as an ice skating coach and her history as a nationally ranked figure skater to focus on representing Olympic athletes and production.
