In 2016, Santa Dale became the main Santa at the Bass Pro store in Tacoma. He has also been Santa at Macy's in downtown Seattle, at Bellevue Square, at area Sears and Wal-Mart photo studios, and at private parties and special events.  Some other clients have included:


Santa Dale has participated in professional training provided by Santa Tim Connaghan's "International University of Santa Claus," Santa Ed Taylor's "Santa Claus Training," and Santa Gordon Bailey's "Santa & the Business of Being Santa." He is a lifetime member of the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas (IBRBS), maintains memberships in NORPAC Santas, Santa America, and ClausNET, and is also a trained Hospice volunteer. Santa Dale carries professional liability insurance and has a current background check.
