A modern day Renaissance man, Zak Santiago is a Golden Gloves winning boxer, popular nightclub DJ, classically trained musician, ballet and flamenco dancer, and an actor. He won a Leo Award in 1994 for best supporting actor in the lauded Human Cargo, and was praised for his supporting lead work as one of the terrorists in A&E’s ratings blockbuster Flight 93.
