Born in 23 October 1973 in Korat, Thailand, Tanwarin Sukkhapisit — better known as Golf — finished her study in French and English from Khon Kaen University. Sukkhapisit had passion for acting since high-school age. She joined her friends in the school plays and dances. Her dream turned to reality in 1998 when she took an acting role as a cross-dresser for TV series Unreal Men but Real Women (Chai Mai Jing Ying Tae). The series was a hit but became controversial because it was thought to have bad influence on teen viewers. Since then, the government has forbidden gay images to be shown on television.
Sukkhapisit has made several shorts since 2001 — some of which won local and overseas awards. She also works as an acting coach and scriptwriter. She made her directorial debut Insects in the Backyard in 2010. It was banned by the Thai rating committee. She went mainstream with the omnibus horror Still (2011), and her second feature Mahasarakam Love (2011), produced by Prachya Pinkaew). It Gets Better is her third feature.
Earlier this year, she was selected by fellow directors as the president of the Thai Film Director Association.
