About Our Founder
I am the Head Elf here at Classic Claus a second-generation Santa that began my journey as an elf jingling reindeer bells and hammering on wooden toys while my mother portrayed Santa over the phone! In addition, my father portrayed Santa at an orphanage in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The year I was able to help Santa (aka Dad) hand out gifts at the orphanage, my heart overflowed with joy as I saw the excitement and happiness on the children’s faces. My parents most definitely created “Santa Magic” as I believed in the jolly old elf well past most of my friends! My mission is to bring that same “Santa Magic” to both young and old.
I have been Santa Claus since 2003, starting out with a store-bought suit and a costume beard. As the years progressed, I improved my performance skills by attending a variety of Santa Schools. Yes, there is a Santa School! I continue to add to my Santa wardrobe and offer Traditional Suits, Woodland, Coca-Cola, Victorian, Race City Santa and Father Christmas. I recently commissioned a high school student to design a one of a kind suit as part of the his senior project.
My commitment to my clients is to create a memory that will be cherished for years to come by sharing tales from the North Pole, creating special Christmas magic, using unique props from the North Pole and offering a special picture gift of one of my reindeer!
As the owner of a regional Santa company Classic Claus LLC, we employed 25 holiday performers for the 2019 season. Serving the western piedmont and surrounding areas of North Carolina, our company has a large assortment of antique sleighs, Santa thrones, holiday props and equipment to make each visit magical!
A true entrepreneur at heart, I remain engaged in the Santa community by selling affordable Santa and Christmas related products. These include Santa and Mrs. Claus attire, quality Amish leather goods, children’s books, giveaway items, and vintage Christmas products through Shop Classic Claus. I have extensive library for all things Christmas and follow the advice of mentor Santa’s through readings, networking and attending Santa schools.
