Pamela is very curious about how things work, especially people. She loves writing and directing films, because it's a great excuse to watch people. In cafes, out windows, on the subway, in the airport. Usually that's just called voyeurism, but if you have a moleskine notebook, you can get away with a lot. She studied behavioral psychology at Macalester College, verité documentary filmmaking with Barbara Kopple, narrative filmmaking at New York University’s MFA program, and she learned everything else by getting lost a lot.

In 2013, Pamela was selected by the Sundance Institute to participate in four fellowships: the Screenwriter’s Lab, the Director’s Lab, the Producer’s Summit, and the Film Music and Sound Design Lab at Skywalker Sound. She was also selected as an NYU Purple List honoree, a Film Society of Lincoln Center Artist’s Academy participant, and the recipient of the Indian Paintbrush Feature Film Grant. In 2012, she wrote and directed a piece for TAR (James Franco, Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, Zach Braff), a multi-director narrative film based on the life and poetry of CK Williams, which premiered at the Rome International Film Festival and is awaiting a US theatrical release. In 2011, Pamela won the National Board of Review’s Student Grant Award and NYU’s prestigious Wasserman/King Award for excellence in filmmaking for her short film Gravity.

Pamela is an avid yogi, a bit of a pyromaniac, and retains just enough of her pre-med education to talk you down from your WebMD diagnosis.
