a life of storytelling.
William David Tuck is a writer, actor, and filmmaker currently based in New York City.
He grew up in a tiny town on the sea on the west coast of Canada. As soon as he was free of high school he set off in the footsteps of many of his favorite writers and began to travel. Working as a photographer, short-order cook, tile-setter, carpenter’s apprentice, landscaper, gallery attendant, busboy, housepainter, laborer, and copywriter, he funded trips across the globe.
He arrived in New York City in his early twenties with a few dollars, a borrowed suitcase filled with books, and the dream to share his stories. He trained for a year at The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre and also received his undergraduate writing degree from The New School University. He was mentored by incredible faculty at both institutions and was a proud member of the Riggio Writing and Democracy Honors Program at The New School.
William strives for honesty and connection in his work. He strives to create the same feelings of connection, hope, power, and love that his favorite artists have imprinted on him.
