I am fortunate to possess the spirit, love, and looks of the most recognized figure in the world, Santa Claus. I make people joyful and help them keep the spirit of Christmas alive all year long. I began portraying Santa in 2013 at Albany lights in the Park after being asked by a friend and fellow Santa, Mel Deigel. I originally started portraying Santa with a theatrical beard, but realized I loved it so much that I grew my own Beard instead. I have been blessed to visit with children Locally at many events and locations through the years.
