Paula Chowles

Senior Producer

Many people don’t believe Paula when she declares herself a Leo. But she happened to be raised in South Africa, where lions once roamed freely. So those classic Leo traits—passionate, creative, brave—really do apply to this former television reporter. Hailing from Cape Town, Paula spent the early part of her career covering political unrest, crime, and the HIV epidemic in her native country before moving to the United States as WIRED’s head of video and eventually landing at Godfrey Dadich. A DJ, cricketer, and world traveler, Paula is always happy to indulge in a glass of whiskey and a nice strip of biltong. (It’s like jerky, but better.)
