About Me

About me

I nerd out on designing products & experiences and seek out the people and companies who help make that happen.

Story

1 May 1992 · Istanbul · INFJ

My academic background is a mashup of art, design, game. I’ve worked multidisciplinary design-related roles with global companies. I participated in different events as a mentor to teach & apply different design methodologies.

I always have the end user in mind, and I design for conversion. My responsibility is to transfer company values, business goals, and peoples’ needs into exceptional data-driven services using simple empathy but at the same time functional proactive approach.

Last but not least, the three foundations that carved out my design ethics:

Care of earth, Care of people, Fair share.

Years Experience

Commercial Projects

Volunteer Projects

Journey

As I’m experiencing different cultures with an open mind, I’m learning that there are many different ways of being human and living as human beings.

I realized that being a designer isn’t just observing the users’ behavior; somewhat, it is comprehension of the urge.

Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple.
