Biography

He attended San Jose State University, majoring in theatre arts, University of Nevada, Reno, majoring in journalism and holds his associate of science degree in Computer Information Systems and trained at San Francisco's Voice One Studio and with Braintracks Audio's Nancy Wolfson in commercial and character voiceover.

Manley was encouraged to become a voice artist after meeting and receiving encouragement at the 2002 FanimeCon from voice artist Amanda Winn Lee; voice artist Tiffany Grant and her husband ADV Films president Matt Greenfield.

Manley has performed voice work for several ADV Films productions, including Francesco in the second volume of Noir; Impact, the giant robot in Legend of the Mystical Ninja; Hyugi Zeravire from Gravion Zwei; Barba from Hakugei: Legend of The Moby Dick; and the English-language narrator for Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.

Additionally, he has written adaptation scripts for the last six episodes of Gantz, and is the series writer for ADV's adaptation of Super Dimension Fortress Macross, 009-1, Coyote Ragtime Show, Pumpkin Scissors and Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid.

Manley is also an on-air personality for Houston's Taping For The Blind Radio (now known as Turning Sight Into Sound Radio), currently reading the Houston Chronicle and Sports Illustrated on a weekly basis.

Manley's last regularly credited dubbing role was for Log Horizon 2 in 2016. Manley had to move on to home-based work due to heart and arthritis conditions. Manley was homeless after struggling with difficulties in finding home-based employment, along with Social Security pulling out on him due to his taxes not being filed. Manley set up a GoFundMe to help with his finances.[1] As of 2019, Manley is currently back in stable living conditions and has done the occasional voice acting role.
