Carlos Leon was born in Havana, Cuba in 1983 and emigrated to the United States with his parents in 1985. From a very young age, he showed a knack for media. At 15, he started a Cuban American website portal that got the attention of several publications in Los Angeles and Miami including the Miami Herald and local spanish publications. He then went on to launch a Spanish online news website called "Oye! Gente" which covered several important news stories and was featured in several publications and websites in Latin America.

He graduated with a degree in Film and Video from Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida in 2003 and almost immediately began a production company from scratch. With no resources or funds, he began making website and videos from the corner of a room in his parent's modest mobile home in La Habra, CA. He placed his first company ads on a local Cuban American directory at no cost after stricking a deal with the owners. The deal was a barter of a free website for free adspace. He also mailed out 100 letters to sorrounding companies. From this small initial advertising push he obtained his first clients including a a multi-national firm and aired his first local television commercials. This was the beginning of CML.

With his first clients, he expanded the operations of his company and decided to join a group of partners opening up a event preparation center on major boulevard in his hometown. Here he would serve as a video and multimedia specialist and build his first office and physical location. Days after Carlos took the responsibility of being the sole owner on paper of the company, several of the partners decided to back off the project on a last minute notice giving the 21 year old a huge challenge to confront. Carlos was left with the full responsibility of the entire company, yet was motivated to work non-stop for the year the lease of the building rsn and save enough capital to move to Hollywood. A month aftter turning 23 , he opened his own video and photo production studio in North Hollywood, CA.

Simultaneously, Carlos Leon also launched a spanish online entertainment channel from Universal City Walk in Hollywood, CA called "Gentevision". The online channel has covered some of the biggest latin celebrities and events from Los Angeles to Miami including the Oscars, Imagen, MTV and the Billboard Awards. It has a variety of hosts and programs currently under production and there are plans on making it a regionally based network for all of Latin America. it has covered several events from Coast to Coast including the Oscars in Los Angeles and the Latin Billboard Awards in Miami. In 2009 it was an official media sponsor of the Billboard Awards and covered the event side by side with major media companies from around Latin America.
