Manny was born in Athens, Greece and moved to New Jersey at the young age of 2. His first passion (food) was obvious when he was about 7 years old helping his mother cook dinner almost every night. He discovered his new passion for the arts when he got out of the food business.
"I fell in love with acting as soon as I started classes!"
Manny continues studying scene work and intensives
in New York City.
"I feel so blessed at every opportunity!"
Although he may be "business as usual" most times, he's kid at heart....especially when he's with his sons, Manny Jr (MJ) and Stephen, doing "boys will be boys" stuff.
