Saving civilians and goofing around with children is all in a day’s work for junior Nate Santos, whose scored a job dressing up as Spider-Man.

Santos enjoys the chance to interact with and entertain kids.

“It’s so much fun; I love getting to see all the kids faces and I haven’t met a bad kid. They’re super polite, super funny, and I get to be like a quirky character, thankfully, so I got pretty lucky with that,” Santos said.

Santos has experienced a variety of reactions from children while in costume.

“They always scream out my name like ‘Oh my god, Spider-Man!’ and then they wanna run up and give me a hug or a high five,” Santos said. “Some of the kids are really nervous and they don’t know what to do, so their parents will bring them up to me.”

Annabelle Tiznado, Santos’s coworker who plays Moana, believes Santos has the perfect attributes to play Spider-Man.

“My boss was looking for a new person to fill our Spider-Man position. Normally it’s hard to get teenage boys to commit to something like that,” Tiznado said. “I knew Nate loved kids and he was super committed to whatever he does, so I mentioned him to one of my bosses and they thought he was a perfect fit for the job.”
