Noah was nominated for the 1st Young Artists Awards for his role in the series.
In 1984 Noah starred in the movie The NeverEnding Story, directed by Hollywood-director Wolfgang Petersen (Das Boot, Air Force One, Troy). Based on the much heralded book by German writer Michael Ende, Noah was cast to play the leading role of young hero Atreyu, who is given the task to save the world of Fantasia. The movie never lost its appeal to both young and old viewers and remains a cult-favourite.

He also starred in a number of movies and TV shows through 1986, including Family Ties, Mork & Mindy and Laverne & Shirley.
During his teens he taught dance, specifically advanced jazz and street dance, until an injury sidelined him at age 18. Prior to moving back to LA in 1998, he lived in New York for two and a half years. In his spare time, he tried to get out to the track at Willow Springs, California, to race in Super Sport motorcycle racing. He has tended bar at several LA clubs and sometimes worked in real estate, which he studied in college, as a mortgage loan officer. He holds black belts in Tang Su Do and Shotokan, and has learned American Kempo from Dr. Jerry Erickson, and he also helps him teach a close-quarter combat-training course for flight attendants and pilots for the airlines.
Noah nowadays mainly keeps himself busy with designing (and riding) customized motorcycles (aka choppers), something that has been a passion ever since his childhood. He’s still learning and taking courses (in for example welding) to perfect his skills. His dream is setting up a shop one day in which he can sell and work on his self built choppers. In collaboration with his wife Sameerah, Noah has owned and operated a tattoo parlor and is in the process of opening a new studio in Los Angeles.
