A Professional Santa from the Indianapolis, IN area. I started portraying Santa in 1978 for my daughter's school. My wife joined me a few years later as Mrs Claus and we expanded our visits to nursing homes and friends.
As I prepared for my retirement, I started offering my services as a professional, went to Santa School to learn the business, and upgraded my Santa suits and accessories. Some of my public appearances include the annual 'Christmas Gift and Hobby Show' at the State Fairgrounds, Santa for the IBEW 481 Electrical Union's Circle Tree Lighting's employee party (Tree Lighting back-up, hence known as the Circle City Santa), and Fisher Park Department's Annual Photos with Santa. I also have experience with private corporate parties, home visits, print & media advertising, and parade appearances. After my retirement I also let my beard and hair grow to a full long Santa length. So, whether you are looking for a traditional looking Mall Santa, Coca Cola style Santa, Old Theme Santa, including Saint Nicolas, himself, I can provide those looks for you to choose from.
It is unfortunate, but in today's society, it is important that you do your due diligence in making sure that your Santa is safe to be around your children and/or guests. I provide you with a copy of my background check from IntelliCorp Records that must obtain to purchase my entertainer's insurance. I can also provide you a copy of my insurance certificate and/or have one issued specifically for your event.
I would love to be your Santa... but, my calender can fill up quickly, so I suggest that you make your request as soon as possible. If I am not available for your event, I belong to several professional Santa groups locally and nationally as well as have contacts with agents and agencies that allow me to help you with your search for a Santa that you will be happy with.
