As an individual, I generally seek audio editing work. For certain projects well-aligned with my interests and knowledge, I would entertain producing work. As a company with some internal projects in development, we're also interested in producing external projects from top to bottom, including reporting, writing, scripting, producing, editing, etc.

About Manny

Manny Faces is an award-winning journalist, podcast producer and editor, entrepreneur, and founding director of nonprofit The Center for Hip-Hop Advocacy. Under his audio production company, Manny Faces Media, he produces and edits several acclaimed shows, including groundbreaking social justice-meets-music podcast, News Beat, its companion video livestream series, This Week In Social Justice, and multimedia interview show, Hip-Hop Can Save America! 

News Beat was awarded Best Podcast at the 2018 New York Press Club Journalism Awards, and the 2019 and 2020 Society of Professional Journalists/PCLI Awards, while Hip-Hop Can Save America! is listed as “recommended material” at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Much of Manny’s work focuses on preserving, protecting, and promoting the ability of Hip-Hop music and culture to improve society and uplift humanity -- particularly in areas including education, science & technology, health & wellness, politics and social justice, journalism, entrepreneurialism, the fine arts, and more. 

Manny is an accomplished public speaker who has lectured, conducted workshops, and participated in panel discussions at conferences and festivals throughout the world, engaging audiences on these topics, as well as politics/social justice, journalism, and podcasting.

And if none of this is impressive enough, he is also a living kidney donor, so there is that.

Manny proudly resides in Newark, NJ.
