Paula Knudsen is just one of 11 million people from São Paulo, Brazil. She's the only child of two chemists. They claim she's not an experiment.
She has lived in four countries, studied German for five years and spent six other years writing documentaries for outlets such as the Discovery Channel, History and NatGeo.
She swore off German and non-fiction to write stories focused on female protagonists. She co-created Julie & The Phantoms, a Nickelodeon Latin America live-action series nominated in 2012 for an International Emmy.
Paula moved from Brazil to Los Angeles on a Fulbright scholarship to pursue her M.F.A. in screenwriting at the University of Southern California. Her PhD holding parents are relieved she finally has something better than a Bachelor's Degree.
As of 2015 Paula is back in Brazil writing pilots, features and mastering the art of walking, breathing and chewing gum at the same time.
Her latest works were the Netflix comedy Samantha! and Spectros, a teen terror for Netflix too. Currently she's writing for Amazon Prime. Apart from being told she must write this in the third person, she's really thrilled that she gets to write this paragraph.
She can be reached by e-mail from anywhere. You can even write her in German.
