Born in Manila as the second of four kids, all Zachary Noddin ever knew was performing arts in its various forms. Growing up his father was an American international businessman, and his mother a professional dancer previous to having children, of Filipino ancestry. The nature of his father’s work meant they were always on the road. Anywhere his father’s business took him, they went.
Due to the constant moving around, he attended schools in various countries. Regardless of where they were living, they always spent their winter and summer vacations in the US and the Philippines.
