Several costumes worn by Ortiz were sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay, including the costumes from the episodes "Distant Origin" [2], "Bounty" [3], "Vox Sola" [4], "The Shipment" [5], "Stigma" [6], "The Xindi" [7], "Flashback" [8], "Resistance" [9] [10] which was later worn by Holmes Osborne in "Canamar", "Awakening" and "Kir'Shara" [11], "Blood Fever" [12], his Culhane uniform [13], a Starfleet undershirt [14], Klingon uniforms [15] [16], a Xindi-Reptilian costume [17], an alien Enterprise costume [18], and a Suliban costume.

Ortiz has also performed in the films Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. (1991, with Rick Gianasi), Class of Nuke 'Em High Part II: Subhumanoid Meltdown (1991, stunt coordinated by Phil O'Dell), The Mask (1994, with Reg E.

He portrayed Jorge in the ER episode Luck of the Draw (1995, with Sam Anderson and Marco Rodriguez). A pictorial of him was shown in the US Playboy (November 1991, Vol. 38, Issue 11) and he served as a craft service man for the film Prison Stories: Women on the Inside (1991).
