I have been fortunate to portray Santa Claus off and on over the last 35+ years. As retired healthcare professionals, Mama Claus (for 30 plus years) and I decided to continue to gently touch hearts by simply bringing joy and creating memories for all those looking for the magic of Christmas. 
We most often work side by side creating those special moments through storytelling, reading, singing and simply visiting with the children.
One of our fondest memories was when a “Make-a-Wish” child came to our home to fulfil her dream of visiting Santa at his home. We drank hot chocolate, baked cookies (for Santa of course!), made crafts and decorated a tree – truly magical for a very special girl and her family.
Other events we love doing are children’s parties and day cares, family gatherings and home visits, churches and shelters, parades and commercial events, restaurants and breakfast with Santa, military and private parties and of course our fun Christmas Eve visits and “Sneak-A-Peek” visits.
We are also available for commercials, films, modeling, etc.
Please contact Mama Claus or me for an opportunity to help you create your magical memories this Christmas season.
We have yearly Background checks and full Liability Insurance for our appearances.
