The Personal Side of Santa
The Person Wearing the Suit
The first child of Thomas and Janis, I was born at Crawford Long Hospital in downtown Atlanta on March 13, 1956. Having been born and raised in Atlanta, and with the exception of 9 years worked in Cincinnati Ohio, I have lived my entire life in Metro Atlanta. That’s why I’m comfortable with the tag “The Atlanta Santa”.
A product of public education, I attended Northwoods Elementary School in Doraville, graduated from Peachtree High School in Dunwoody, and also spent time at The Georgia Institute of Technology (Ga. Tech). I married Michele Hauck in 1980 at her family’s home in Alpharetta. We have two adult children, Adam and Alix, who are both married. Our first grandchild, Jude, was born in September, 2011 and our most recent, Hugo, was born in June, 2021.
