Manny Marquez was born in Northeastern Oklahoma, and as a child used the wide open spaces, lakes, and horse ranches as the inspiration for his creative life. This attachment to small town America has stuck with him to this day and he loves the people and stories he finds there. He attended the Art Center College of Design, where he graduated with honors with a BFA in Directing and Screenwriting. Quickly excelling into the film production world. Manny soon got the attention of the Fox Studios Diversity Development Program, where he was groomed as a TV Writer. Manny's interest in music videos and documentary took him out of the TV. He knew he needed to be shooting and creating. By immersing himself in the LA music scene, he soon began shooting videos and EPK's for a variety of artist from many different genres. Now living in Hood River, OR, with his girlfriend, their dog and two cats, he can glance at the Columbia River from his porch while drinking a micro brew from the local brewery. Manny is currently in post on his first feature documentary, PSYCHOPATH about a garbage man in rural Oklahoma that spends his life's savings building a haunted house theme park.
