For some, Valentine’s Day is filled with flowers, chocolate, and romancing that special someone. For the rest of us, it might look something like this…no matter your relationship status this Valentine’s Day, you’ll relate to our original comedy short “What We’re All Thinking”.

I’ve always loved writing but this was my first time writing for the screen and what a wonderful experience it was! I am endlessly grateful to my partner both in life and career, Michael Rub for co-writing this piece with me (and helping me be funny). Also have to give a major shout out to our director, DP, and crew, Thang Ho, Vishvesh Bakshi, Christian Chambers, and W. N. McNair for being absolutely incredible to work with and making the set positive and fun.
I really love this piece because, while (hopefully) entertaining and humorous, it also reminds us to check our assumptions about gender roles and stereotypes. Despite our modern age of dating, with the dating apps, lack of “actual dates”, and hookup culture, we still hold on to this idea that it’s always going to be the men with sex on the brain and women are simply hellbent on finding a husband. I hope this piece opens your eyes to the more realistic possibilities of “what we’re all thinking”. Oh yeah, and…buttholes ARE funny. Here’s to continuing to learn, grow, and creating many more short films in the future!
Thank you so much for watching!
