With sparkling blue eyes, rosy cheeks and a jolly personality, Santa Rick is the embodiment of the true “Spirit of Santa”. He truly believes that “the world belongs to the children” and he loves to bring hope and joy into the lives of all he meets. His enthusiasm for the magic and wonder of the Christmas season is infectious and will leave children and adults alike believing that they have just spent time with the real Santa.

A committed member of the community, Santa Rick has volunteered for several organizations including Big Brothers of America, Boy Scouts of America, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Toys for Tots, United Cerebral Palsy, and the Georgia Aquarium. When he’s not delighting children and adults alike, Santa Rick mentors and serves as a booking agent to Santas and and other holiday professionals in the industry.  Santa Rick is the proprietor of the National Santa Agency, which provides Santas, Mrs. Claus, Elves and Santa's helpers to clients around the country.

A consummate professional, Santa Rick has instructed at several prestigious Santa schools where he consistently demonstrates and advocates professionalism and integrity in the Santa industry.
