He was born and raised in Santa Monica, California. Sports and stunts always were a part of his life; he wrestled in High School and was a professional jockey for over twenty years.

Muñoz portrayed Dr. Krovitz in the Frasier episode Halloween (1997, alongside Kelsey Grammer and Dan Butler), performed stunts as one of the apes in Tim Burton's remake Planet of the Apes (2001), served as kid stunt double in Sam Raimi's comic adaptation Spider-Man (2002), and was one of the stunt jockeys in the drama Seabiscuit (2003, with Michael Ensign, David Doty, Ed Lauter, Shay Duffin, Michael Buchman Silver, and stunts by Kevin Derr, Jim Halty, and Marty Murray).
