Journalist Paul Blake in a photo taken in Mexico City in March 2017.My name is Paul Blake, and I’m a video journalist for BBC News, based in Washington, DC.

On any given day, I can be found filing video, audio and text stories for BBC’s website and broadcast outlets.

I previously worked as a business reporter for ABC News in New York City, and – before that – as a breaking news text reporter for BBC News’ website.

Born in North Carolina, I grew up in Washington, DC, and most recently lived in Cali, Colombia.

I’m speak enough Spanish to embarrass myself.
