Santiago studied Mass Media in his hometown of Lima, Peru, where he lived until 2000. He moved to Madrid, to teach drama and creative writing, as well as elementary, middle and high school Spanish. While in Madrid, Santiago he directed a group of underprivileged immigrant youth in staging an acclaimed play that he wrote, co-produced and directed based on their shared experiences. In 2010, Santiago moved to Barcelona, where he started and led a creative writing workshop, coaching authors between the ages of 12 to 70 in their writing of poetry, short plays, scripts, fiction and non-fiction pieces. In 2011, Santiago was a guest teacher in “La Semana del Español” at the Briar Cliff University in Sioux City, Iowa. Santiago won a poetry prize in 2005, and was a finalist in ‘Ojalá Prize’ in 2007. His fiction blog, ‘Los Linderos del Fuego’, was selected a finalist in an international competition sponsored by “Diario 20 Minutos”, a Spanish newspaper. Santiago has published stories, micro-narrative, and poems in some Spanish literature magazines. In addition to his teaching, he is currently working in a novel and a book of short stories.
