I didn’t have any idea how important being Santa Claus would become when I first received the phone call in 2004 asking if I would volunteer for a local fund raiser. They needed a Santa and I had a short white beard. After some initial reluctance I agreed to put in a Santa suit and be their Santa.

I instantly fell in love with being Santa and from that day, all of those years ago, I’ve been striving to be the best, most authentic, Santa Claus ever. If I was going to wear the Santa suit and portray one of the greatest legends of all time…well, I wanted to be the very best Santa I could be.

In addition to personal appearances be sure to look for me on TV and on the Internet. I’ve appeared as Santa Claus in many national commercials and TV Programs. I’m also in a couple of Internet ads and even a music video.

“Ed Taylor is so authentic as St. Nick himself, I found myself confused and wondering ‘Is Santa actually for real and standing in front of me?’ He’s a master.”

“Not only is Ed Taylor the most convincing Santa Claus I’ve ever seen, he’s also incredibly nice, super easy to work with, and a very funny improviser.”

Whether I’m portraying Santa Claus on a Hollywood set, walking through Costco, driving down the freeway, standing in front of a video camera or sitting with children on my knee I am Santa Claus… and everyone knows it.

I have been blessed with a heartwarming laugh that naturally transforms into the most jolly Ho Ho Ho you would ever want to hear, a twinkle in my eye and voice that projects my natural enthusiasm.

My hair and beard are naturally white, not dyed, so when even the staunchest skeptics see the slight variations of white and grey they know they are in the presence of the REAL Santa Claus.

Oh, and the belly that jiggles like a bowl full of jelly, yes, I have that too.
