Early years and education[edit]

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Sanchez moved to Los Angeles and later returned to New York City where he trained at the Bill Esper Studios. During that time, he also joined LAByrinth Theater Company, currently run by Artistic Directors: Philip Seymour Hoffman and John Ortiz. He was a member of LAByrinth for 12 years (1993–2005).


In 2002 he formed a company, 3 Wolves Production, and co-produced the film Find Me Guilty which was directed by Sidney Lumet and was released in 2006. In 2005 he produced, in association with the American Film Institute's directing workshop for women, and wrote 'A through M' a dramatic short film inspired by the aftermath of 9/11. The film was directed by Heidi Miami Marshall and has won several awards in film festivals.

In April 2007, he appeared as 'Tito' in the independent film 'Downtown: a street tale' opposite John Savage, Burt Young, and Geneviève Bujold. As well, that same month the film 'Even Money', which he co-produced, was also released in theaters. The film received some very cold reviews among critics although it had a great cast that included Danny DeVito, Kim Basinger, Kelsey Grammer, Ray Liotta, and Forest Whitaker.
