We all go to sleep every night, so why do so many of us find it so elusive? At Tuck Media, we believe that sleep is the third pillar of health, worthy of as much attention, study, and effort as diet/nutrition and physical fitness.
From alarm clocks to mattresses, sleep products are our passion. We research, analyze, and test every topic and product that impacts sleep. Our mission is to inform and equip you with the tools needed to perfect your sleep.
Sleep touches everything we do. It’s personal. Our evidence-based, data-driven approach removes subjectivity, giving you actionable answers to your specific sleep questions. Take a peek at our research methodology and advertising disclosure to learn about how we operate. Feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions, would like a personalized product recommendation, or have a product you’d like reviewed.
Keith graduated from Whitman College in 2008 with a BA in Economics and has since worked in digital marketing roles before founding Tuck. His passion for sleep started in his mid-20s when he started experiencing various forms of insomnia and sleep in general just didn’t come as easy as it used to. When trying to understand his sleep issues, he discovered that there was not only contradictory advice from site to site and extreme bias from manufacturers, but there wasn’t a dedicated resource for both sleep health as well as product reviews and hence Tuck was born.
Bill had been an entrepreneur for nearly 15 years, before he decided his current lifestyle wasn’t healthy, and a change was needed. In taking a step back, he began to understand the extreme importance of sleep as part of one’s health regimen. In 2015, Bill dove head first into learning all he could in regards to sleep, and saw the potential to not only live more healthy, but a true business growth area as individuals continue to invest in their personal health and wellness. From designing and constructing mattresses for sale online, to becoming a Certified Sleep Science Coach, and even reviewing thousands of sleep products, he now understands the needs of the consumer from both sides. Bill graduated from Xavier University where he captained the baseball team, and now lives in Cincinnati with his wife and two sons.
