Moritz grew up in Westwood and graduated from UCLA, where he did a Semester at Sea program. When he came back, he gave away several backpacks that were popular with Chinese students. He had so many requests for the backpacks that he and a friend began a company importing purses and bags from Taiwan. He sold the company to an investor, and returned to school. He earned a master's degree from the University of Southern California's School of Cinema-Television in 1985. He is a member of the school's Alumni Development Council. As of April 2017, Moritz has been married for 15 years and has two children, aged 14 and 11.
