Santos has participated in theatre companies and has worked for some of the most important Spanish-language television networks in the United States and Mexico, such as Televisa, for which he worked for over ten years.
A member of Venevision Productions' directorial team since 2010, Santos directed the production of telenovelas including Sacrificio de Mujer, Eva Luna, Corazon Apasionado and El Talisman. He directed the Web novela No Me Hallo for Univision and also took part as an actor, acting coach and director in a number of major productions for the Telemundo network.
Venevision was integrated into the Cisneros Media brand last year in an effort to unify the communication structure and offer more efficiency for advertisers.
