Wally was born in Alexandria, VA to Consuelo Padilla and Howard Eastwood on December 8th, 1964. Early in life and as a toddler Wally gained plenty of experience behind the ring of his parents circus acts and eventually ended up learning a variety of various skills to which he would continue to practice for years to come. Having the name to back him up as well, Padella was well known all throughout Mexico as “Ringling” was in America.
At the age of 7 Wally began to demonstrate his extraordinary ability to charm audiences, after long he ended up as a part of the act of famous Juggler Rejean St. Jules. Wally ended up breaking his arm while riding a unicycle for the performance, and from there he decided to set his sights solely on Juggling.

But after two years Wally began to again practice his juggling skills with the help of his new wife, he sought to increase his skills and land his own act.
