About Noah


Born on May 31, 2003 in Santa Monica, CA, he was the son of Christopher and Andrea (Almeida) Mack.


Noah grew up in Los Angeles, graduating from the Oakwood School in North Hollywood in 2021. He was honored as a National African American Recognition Program Scholar. Noah was a champion debater as well as a track and field athlete. Noah’s passion was writing. While in school, he wrote novels, feature-length screenplays and teleplays. He was also a mentor and leader, and embodied commitment to civil justice. Noah enjoyed the thrill of debate and passed his excitement and knowledge on by becoming a debate coach for younger students. He created and led an affinity group at his secondary school, BMORE (Black/Brown Men at Oakwood Representing Excellence), to create a place of inclusion and understanding and a platform for advocacy and positive change.


Noah was a Sophomore at Brown University. At Brown, Noah was a Literary Arts concentrator who studied literature, political judgment and moral philosophy. He was active in theatre and was also a member of the Brown Madrigal Singers. At Providence’s Stages of Freedom Museum, Noah served as a grant writer, speech writer and museum curator. He also recently began acting as a curator for the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA.

Besides his parents he leaves one brother, Nicolas Mack, his maternal grandparents, Antonette and Rodolfo Almeida, his paternal grandparents, Haris ElAmin and Gillian Baird, two uncles, John Almeida and Lester DeRaad, two aunts, Jennifer Mack and Elizabeth DeRaad and many great aunts, uncles and cousins.
