My goal is to portray Santa while making a memory for children and their parents. Christmas is about peace and happiness.

What to Expect
For my home visits, I have read a story like "The Night Before Christmas", though at times that is above the level of my audience. My interaction with children generally is about making a memory for them, making them "Believe", even if that belief is just about sharing joy with family which is really what Christmas is about. Most children have a list for Santa; I ask them to choose the one gift they really want, trying to help parents in that regard. I have been in a "photo setting" in a store for about 4 hours at a time; I've never been in a mall, and probably would prefer not to be.
After I retired from the business world in 2006, a good friend recommended I portray Santa Claus. My first work was with a professional photographer who helped me gain experience in that setting. My next work was with another professional photographer who let me know she could tell I knew what Santa should be about. I was a member of F.O.R.B.S. when I started, then when I relocated to Washington from California I joined I.B.R.B.S. My suit was created by Adele's of Hollywood; I attended the "International University of Santa Claus"; I do have a current "background check".
