"To whom it may concern,
The year 2020, leading into 2021, has been quite busy for me, to say the least... Of course, my debut short film The Mare was finalized and I saw it entering multiple festivals during the film festival season of 2020-2021. This was a massive step for me personally and in my career as a filmmaker.
As its festival run is nearing its end and the film is getting ready for a wide release, my fingers are itching with excitement to keep creating and I'm glad to say I've started work on a new script.
It's currently titled Hookup.
I'm not really ready to reveal more than: Me being busy writing on its script, that it's a drama short and that I look forward to once again collaborate with my dear friend and INCREDIBLE cinematographer Daniel J. Edin on it.
Simultaneously as all of this has happened I've reached new clarity on a more personal level. The spring of 2021 was the most hectic, life-changing and incredible period of my life as it marked the day I publicly came out as a trans woman.
I am very proud to be who I am, and so lucky to do what I do.
I hope you look forward to seeing more of my work, as I look forward to sharing it with you...
