William at home in Brooklyn.


William David (W.D.) Tuck is a writer, actor, and filmmaker based in New York City.

He will always believe in the power of stories.

William grew up in a small town and was constantly moving between the homes of his mother and father. Not feeling like he fit in, it was in books and movies he found characters he could relate to. In stories he found belonging, and he grew up wanting to share that same sense of excitement and hope with other people.

William followed in the footsteps of many of his favorite writers, and set off on extensive adventures across the globe. He traveled throughout Latin America, Europe, North Africa, Southeast Asia, and across Canada and the U.S., before finally settling in New York City. He arrived with a borrowed suitcase full of books, a few dollars in his pocket, and the dream to share his stories.

He attended The New School University in Manhattan, paying his tuition with a variety of writing scholarships, and by working as a waiter. He was mentored by incredible faculty in The New School’s gifted undergraduate writing program. A lover of all forms of storytelling, William works in a variety of mediums. He writes fiction, poetry, non-fiction, screenplays, and plays. He is also known to make an appearance in films, behind, and in front of the camera.  

In his work you’ll find stunning emotional honesty, hope, connection, and a lifelong love of stories.
