I'm originally from Charlotte, NC where I joined the US Air Force in 1964 following graduation from High School. While in service I was based at Dow AFB, Bangor, Maine, Mactan AB, Philippines, Tan Son Nhut AB, Vietnam and Bolling AFB, Washington, DC. I remained in service until 1972 when I finally was discharged. I worked in Law Enforcement for 10 years in Washington DC Metropolitan Police then moved to the White House police and eventually down to Georgia working for the Dekalb County Sheriff's Dept outside of Atlanta. In 1989 I went back to the government and worked for FAA in Atlanta and then went to the Foreign Service and remained there for the rest of my career retiring in 2003. I have been a practicing Santa Claus performer for many years beginning in 1970 to the present. I joined PGR in 2009.
