I’m Hayley, a multimedia journalist based in London, currently writing about innovations at the forefront of technology for 3D Printing Industry, while maintaining a travel and lifestyle blog and other freelance ventures on the side. Prior to this, I held staff writer, reporter and editor roles at CyclingIndustry.News and Torque Magazine.
In the three years since graduating with a NCTJ Diploma in Journalism alongside my Journalism studies degree, I have gained experience in news and feature writing for online and print, producing content for social media, podcast hosting and editing, video production, graphic design and SEO. I also project-managed the launch of a new international B2B publication for the US market from scratch, and was made editor three months later.
I love discussing and writing about sport, technology, travel, the environment and politics in addition to a whole host of other topics. While these subjects interest me in particular, I have a wide-ranging media skillset and a keen eye for news angles that ensures my skills are applicable to a variety of subject matters.

Sport Saved My Life: I filmed this short film as part of my final year project at university, exploring how sport can provide positive benefits to individuals coping with mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression. The film features the stories of two interviewees who describe how taking up sport has turned their life around, as well as insight into how mental health can affect the professional side of sport.
Working for Free: I filmed this short news package as the second part of my final year university project, investigating unpaid internships within the journalism and the media industry. The film brings together the views of both those undertaking unpaid internships, and those delivering them, to provide an insight into the topic.
Taiwan Factory Tour 2019: During my time at Torque Magazine, I was invited on a press trip to Taiwan to tour the factories of 10 fastener and tool companies. I produced a short video of my time there, filming the manufacturing facilities and processes of the companies for inclusion within a manufacturing review article for our digital magazine.
Hayley travels: I started my travel blog in October 2019 as a way of diversifying my writing and giving myself the freedom to be a little more creative with my work. I love travelling to new places, exploring different cultures, and trying out authentic food and drink from around the world, and getting to write about it is a bonus. I fit working on my blog around my full-time job, and would love to dedicate more time to it in the future to grow its reach and post more regular, engaging content.
