Santiago is dedicated to providing you a unique Magical experience on a personal level.
Based in Santa Cruz, California, he has been studying the art and history of magic for well over two decades and bringing his magic to audiences all around Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Silicon Valley.
In that time he has become a Magician Member of the Academy of Magical Arts, Inc., more famously known as the Magic Castle in Hollywood California, as well as a frequent participant at the Las Vegas Magic and Mystery School.
His wanderings through history have helped him create a unique and beautiful blend of magic and storytelling unlike any other performer. Add to this a lifetime of theatrical experience, and you can be sure that you will see a masterful performance that will leave you wanting more.
Perfectly comfortable on stage or platform, Santiago favors working his magic intimately with small groups, at table side or while strolling about where he can interact with everyone on a personal level bringing the entertainment and wonder directly to his audiences.
Thank you very much for helping to provide the entertainment for our event. I feel things went VERY well. We appreciate you showing up on time, well in advance of the party start time. This helped to take the pressure off of me keeping things on track.
There seemed to be a steady flow of guests sitting with each of you for a reading so I feel the number of people you brought with you was sufficient for the size of the group we had. They were all very nice and professional.
We would definitely use you again for future events.
Staci Simmons, Branch Manager
The performance was everything we could (and did) ask for. Our guests
were entertained as well as us. A great sense of humor and engaging
magical performance. He added an extra level of "magic" to an already
wonderful day. Thank you for everything.

Thank you so much for making my Halloween/Housewarming party special. I believe your "spooky magic" show was the crowning point in the evening. It is a real treat to watch you perform. I don't think a person in the room took their eyes off you! I particularly enjoyed your haunted key. In a house as old as ours, I wouldn't be surprised if there is a ghost or two.
Thank you also for your fire-breathing performance, plus it's encore! I remember hearing several of my guests express their concern that they missed it the first time, but you seem quite delighted to oblige a second demonstration. Plus, watching you teach several guests to "eat" fire was a very generous gift (particularly watching my boyfriend try it out.) Thank you.
I hope to see you perform many times in the future.
I just wanted to say "thank you" and more importantly, "wow!" In the three years I have been with NorCal Business Marketing Association, we had not had a mixer event. Our 1930's "gangster" theme was a success in part because of your great magical talent and ease with which you engaged our attendees. You even dressed the part, which made the event even more fun.
Strolling among folks, you had a personable patter and yet you were never in the way of conversation between other guests. Of course, your sleight of hand was terrific, and I hadn't seen many of your tricks performed anywhere else. You were on time, professional, and fun.
Thanks again for helping make our mixer a success, and we hope to do it again next year!

On behalf of myself and my staff, I would like to thank you again for your performance at our annual picnic.
Even though the conditions in a public park were less than optimal for performing, you were calm and professional and more than capably kept the audience entertained. Your illusion and storytelling skills are nothing short of amazing, and we can't wait for your next performance.
Thank you for the excellent performance you did for our office holiday party last week. The variety of magic you did was great and the fire eating finale was truly remarkable. Your magical skill amazed us all! Everyone who attended the party was still asking "How did he do that?" the following day at work. You certainly helped make our party a memorable evening.

Thank you very much for your wonderful contibution to the United Way of Santa Cruz County Annual Victory
Dinner held on March 18th. Many of our guests commented that the walk-around performances were the best part
of the whole evening! You greatly helped them get into the spirit of the event. I would highly recommend you
to any organization or individual.

I have hired Santiago several times for New Year's Eve parties for entertainment, and have always been amazed by the end result. He weaves storytelling together with his magic acts, leading to what one can truly call a magical experience. I have never been disappointed by his performances either onstage or behind the scenes when coordinating with me regarding locations and times. This is one magician who won't pull a disappearing act on you at the last minute!
