Patty Jenkins is a writer and director, best known for directing Warner Bros. Wonder Woman, her debut Oscar-winning feature Monster and helming the pilot and finale episode of AMC's The Killing. She began her career in painting after studying at Cooper Union.

While there, she crossed over to filmmaking and went on to work as a cameraperson on commercials and music videos for nine years before attending the AFI Los Angeles.
