Santa Mario first donned the Red Velvets in 2015, after seeing on-line the opportunities for Professional Santa’s. Soon after attending School 4 Santa’s, where he has since earned and holds a Master’s Degree in Santaology.
The year he graduated, Santa Mario became the official Santa Claus at The L.A. Zoo in Griffith Park. Where he continues into the 2018 Christmas season.
Santa Mario comes from an entertainment background. As an actor, and also in everyday life, he was and is a natural with children (and even adults). Keeping them easily entertained for hours on end.
When in Musical Stage Plays where children were in the cast, they would be naturally drawn to him. Which made the other Adult cast members very thankful. One his best compliments came from one of the children in “Sound Of Music”. He was playing one of the “BAD GUYS” in the show. Very innocently during lunch break. One of the kids (because he always played with them) came up to him and said “You are so different then the part you play”. His response was “I sure hope so” and smiled.
