Pavel was born in Ostrava in 1983. He studied at the grammar school in Ostrava-Hrabůvka and after passing the school-leaving exam, Pavel applied for the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno and studied drama directing as his major. He graduated in 2009 and until 2014, he was working as a freelancer. In 2014, Pavel came back to Ostrava and became an artistic chief, stage director and dramaturg in Stará Aréna—a venue in which a new theatre scene emerged at that time. In 2019, he became a freelance stage director again. Currently, besides other things, Pavel teaches at the Janáček Conservatory in Ostrava and works as a stage director in the theatre Studio G.
