Croí – Adventures of the heart, worldwide.
Since leaving Ireland, I am working as a location independent freelancer, alongside my partner, for our business – Croí. I am an expert in social media, website and online content creation for both businesses inside and out of the media industry. Sandrina is a passionate designer and concept developer. She has worked for years helping businesses, NGO’s and charities with branding, website design, promotional materials, sponsorship and business brochures to name but a few of our offerings to businesses. Together we are able to not just develop professional and high-quality promotional designs and websites but also edit or create engaging text and content aimed at engaging your audience. If you have a project that you think we would be perfect for, then do not hesitate to send me an email directly.
Customer Experience Specialist
During my role with Airbnb, I ensured that our customers had the best possible experience before, during and after their stay. This involved high-pressure problem-solving in short notice rebooking cases, mediation between guests and hosts, as well as general assistance and guidance in all aspects of the Airbnb platform. A job like this taught me to always give beautiful customer service and to think outside of the box to problem solve under pressure.

Writer & Trainee Editor

O’Casey’s Irish Pub, the Netherlands
Working as a manager in the award-winning pub gained me incomparable experience in customer relations and learning hands on about how to run a business. Furthermore, due to my background in the media, I advised and developed concepts for the owners about social media strategies, marketing, and development of the company’s brand and advertising. O’Casey’s went on to win the best Global Irish Community Pub award in 2017.
