Upon matriculating in 2001, Manny enrolled at California State University, Sacramento on a football scholarship.
He was forced to quit after having dislocated his shoulder for the eighth time, which had made it impossible for him to pursue a career as a professional Football Player (and he lost his scholarship); he thus switched to California State University, Long Beach, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in journalism and broadcasting.
Manny worked as a DJ for the following couple of years, prior to launching his acting career.

The following a couple of years saw Manny appear in an episode of various hit series, including the crime fantasy drama “Grimm”, the crime drama “Power”, and the drama “Graceland Insider”. In 2017 and 2018, he voiced the lead character Zeno in the animated family adventure series “Mission Force One”, created by Sascha Paladino, and which also starred Fiona Bishop and Dee Bradley Baker. It follows Miles and his family who are travelling in outer space, and the series won one of the five awards for which it was nominated.
