Manuel Batlle was born in San Jose, California. At the age of 9 he moved to Dominican Republic where he spent 8 years. He returned to the U.S. and graduated at Irvington High school in Fremont, California. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1998 and served during Operation Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom as an Avionics Technician. He was able to travel to countries like Peru, Brazil, The Azores, Spain, Sicily, Bahrain, Oman, Afghanistan, Singapore, Thailand and Japan. After 6 years of service he returned to Dominican Republic in 2004 where studied to be a Medical Doctor.
 
Upon graduation he worked in General Surgery for a major hospital in Santo Domingo called Hospital General Plaza de la Salud. Noticing, and seeing as close as his fingertips, the fragility of the human body sparked the desire to write of the many miracles in plain view just waiting to be discovered and displayed in the form of writings. He is currently working on the completion of his USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Exam) in order to apply for specialty training in the US.
