“Hayley is an excellent writer and very professional to work with. All articles were provided each week meeting deadlines and communication was always excellent.”

Matthew Stapleford, Immigration Experts

Hello. I’m a British freelance writer based in Austria.

I provide copywriting and content writing services for agencies and independent businesses around the world.

Clients include online marketplaces Chippa Nation and WildBounds, luxury shoe brand Mengloria, fine art logistics specialists Convelio, communications agency Liberty PR and Liongate Consulting.

To keep my journalism skills sharp I also write for The Local Austria – an English-language news outlet.

In pre-freelance times I worked for a London-based PR agency (transport specialists) and a New Zealand-based media intelligence company.

Plus, I’ve been featured in Freelancer Magazine, Creative Boom, Big Cartel and Falling off the Ladder.

But how did it all start?

The backstory

I started out as a journalist for a regional daily newspaper in Chester, UK, back in the mid-2000s.

That was just before news went digital so my portfolio from those early days contains only real newspaper cuttings – so retro.

Then, in 2009, I set off from the UK with a backpack and headed to New Zealand.

What was intended to be a six-month trip turned into a 13-year global adventure (and counting) and I’ve since lived in five different countries. With a few stints back in the UK along the way.

Needless to say, travel and experiencing different cultures has been a big influence in my life.

And it’s made me a better writer as a result.
