Scientific & Academic Writer, Travel & Tourism Copywriter and
Proofreader & Editor.
I am Dr. Tammy Ellis, founder and the person behind CollaborWrite Creative
I am a native English-speaking copywriter who lives in Austria
My expertise combines a research Ph.D. with training as a SEO copywriter.
I have over 20 years’ experience in writing engaging, persuasive, well-researched content.
What is Copywriting and why do I need it?
is the art and science of strategically delivering words that persuade people to take some form of action – whether it’s buying your product, visiting your store or leaving a comment on your blog.
My goal is to have intimate insight of who is your ideal customer or reader – and craft your story that attracts your dream client/reader.
- Are you looking for content that will “knock their socks off”?
- Are your business documents lacking spark and style?
Need help wordsmithing your ideas into engaging content that influences?
No matter what industry, I can compose well-written and researched copy for your next project.
Originally from Canada, I completed my Ph.D. in Vienna Austria. So began my expat adventures and love of travelling.
I then moved to Australia and lived in sunny Brisbane, where I worked in various environments- as a cancer researcher, Government policy, hospital and not-for-profit foundations and research administration.
During my career, I realized that writing was my favourite part of all my jobs.

20 years and two kids later, it was time that I woke up every morning doing something that I loved. So I studied with two leading Australian Copywriting Schools.
Adding to the adventure, we moved to the Austrian Alps, where I now provide freelance English writing, editing and proofreading services internationally.
I love living in the Austrian Alps. I spend time trying to learn German and in winter I am the slowest skier in my family
My demanding Office Manager/CEO (chief Eating officer) is our Golden Retriever ‘Aussie’. You can find me every morning (even in the rain & blinding snowstorms) out walking with our CEO.
I love to travel. My favourite cities (so far) are Vienna, Singapore and Bangkok.
I am learning to be an Austrian cook – my favourite Austrian dishes to cook are Kasnocken, Schnitzel and Kaiserschmarrn.
