    Account Manager (NYC)


    It was time to move on, exploring new lands, new businesses, new lives. It was a great experience in such a short time. I moved to New York and got into the design business with Userspots. We did so much in a very short time.

    Internal Auditor

    Doğan Holding

    Being an auditor and traveling all cities were a good choice for a while. I remember auditing times that I was creating digital projects on the side and taking to the related directors of media departments. They were the times of discovering myself.

    Internal Auditor

    Kuveyt Turk Participation Bank

    Internal audit seemed the right career choice at the time because I was so much into details. I had great chance to learn corporate affairs and finance business. I always had the desire of having a job which also fulfills my satisfaction, which I did. The works I did here were good experiences for my future career.

    Political Science (Bachelor's Degree)

    Bilkent University/Ankara

    I got my Bachelor’s Degree at Bilkent University, which is the best university in Turkey. It was a time period I learned so much about life and myself.

What I Do

Product Design

It’s a magical thing to build something and witness people using your thing. That’s the only thing satisfies my desires in business.

Digital Marketing

The most effective way of putting your thing in front of eyes is using digital marketing methods. That’s what we’ll always need and we’ll always be adapting to.


Writing has always been my passion. I feel myself in a never-ending learning process. I like to share what I learn and blogging is a great way of it.


Fun doesn’t necessarily mean going to clubs and getting drunk with friends. Looking at my babygirl’s smile is sometimes the best fun time.
