I was born and raised in California, in a family with 5 siblings.
When I was 10 years old, I began to surf and spent many wonderful
decades enjoying the water, surfing activities and travel.
I remember when I was young, my dad would take our family to his
Kiwanis Club’s Christmas programs, where we would receive gifts from
Santa, sing songs and have our pictures taken with jolly ol’ Saint Nick. I
now belong to that same Kiwanis club and have been a member for 43
I also served on the Board of Directors of ARC and served as the
treasurer of the Los Angeles and Orange counties chapter for 15 years.
ARC is an association which provides services to mentally and physically
impaired individuals. For 30 years, my father and I were the
photographers for the annual Christmas portraits for the ARC
I am married to my beautiful wife of 52 years, and have 2 children and
4 grandchildren, ranging in age for 6 to 21.
I am an Air Force veteran, having served as an air traffic controller
during the Vietnam war. I am a college graduate with my degree in
Economics. Currently I am retired, which has given me time to pursue
two of my passions, playing the harmonica and being a ceramics potter.
Santa's Suit & Training:
Our Real-bearded Santas have custom-made suits with velvet, high quality faux fur, trims, gold buttons and all of the best finishings the North Pole has to offer! Santa begins training for the season at the end of summer and is trained in photo taking, storytelling, magic, and meet and greets.
Santa would love to greet your guests and take lots of photos throughout your event. In addition, he is also trained to tell Stories with magical elements added. Santa learns a new story each year, so you will never hear the same one! Here is a list of activities Santa can upon request, in addition to photo taking:
– Santa entrance with a sack full of gifts (gifts provided by the host). Santa will hand out presents at the end of the appearance and the guests can open their gifts as he makes his exit.
– Magic of Christmas Illusions
– Chat on Santa's Lap & photo time
With activities like gift giving and storytime incorporated into his appearance, we suggest 1hr for up to 35 children, 30 mins for up to 15 children.
If you are planning a large scale event, you may want to account for 3-5mins per family for photos and meet and greets.
