William at home in Brooklyn.


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

William owes his life to the power of stories.

He grew up in a small town where he didn’t feel like he fit in, and was constantly moving between the homes of his mother and father. Stories helped him navigate his childhood. In books and films he found characters he could relate to, and he grew up wanting to share that same sense of belonging and excitement with other people.

William set off on extensive adventures throughout Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, Thailand, Malta, and across Canada and the U.S., before arriving in New York City with a borrowed suitcase full of books and a few dollars in his pocket. 

He attended The New School University on a writing scholarship, and was mentored by incredible faculty in their gifted undergraduate writing program. He writes fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and screenplays.

He writes to offer everything he has to give.
