The Most Authentic Santa South Of The North Pole!©

The Christmas season is a time of togetherness with special traditions, priceless memories with your children & loved ones & magical moments that you will treasure always. The addition of this traditional, yet unique Santa will leave everyone with the gift of a smile upon their faces & a warm glow in their hearts.

I have been a professional character actor, director and designer for many years at theatres, private & corporate events, festivals and Walt Disney World!

My Santa has the appearance of a real bearded Santa with an original custom built Santa Suit. My Mr. Claus is both traditional yet unique. You won’t see another Santa like mine!


The designer beard I use is movie quality 100% real human hair. It was created for me by hand by Ron Wolek of  Wolek's Famous World's Greatest Moustache Parlour!

My wardrobe was designed and built by myself and is both elegant and uniquely Santa! Sure to convince even the most skeptical that Santa Claus is real.


With a warm personality full of love my Santa will charm the children and the child at heart in the adults.
