Early life and career

Tim Yap was the youngest of seven kids. While attending high school at Saint Jude Catholic School, he won the lead role in Lost in Yonkers, which marked the 25th anniversary of the Repertory Philippines, but his parents and his school didn’t allow him to go, so he attended rehearsals in secret, informing the school security guard that he had the permission of his teacher and principal to leave school. "My parents had no clue that I was going to Repertory," he said. "All along they thought that I was just attending a rehearsal for a school play until they read about it in the newspapers." After several roles for young characters, Yap continued on as a production intern for repertory plays just to be involved. He eventually evolved into an events producer, which led him to be sought after to handle product launches and fashion shows.

Yap graduated from De La Salle University with a bachelor's degree in marketing, and later on received his master's degree in entrepreneurship from the Asian Institute of Management. He edited the "Super" section of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, and then left the Inquirer to start the "Supreme" section of the Philippine Star.
