Born and raised in İskenderun/Hatay. Graduated from İstiklal Makzume Anatolian High School in 2001, which was one of the best public schools in the Mediterranean area of Turkey. I guess it’s still one of the best at the time you’re reading this. Moved to İstanbul in 2001 to study Economics at İstanbul University. It took about some 7 years for me to complete the programme, I would like to thank all the guys out there who allowed me to do paid military service just about the time the university should be able to dismiss me as a student.
I like to ride my bikes (yeah, I have two) -mostly alone-, lie down the bed all the day, learn to code, code to learn (especially front-end and user experience stuff), watch Cartoon Network, go out for a walk in the forest (if I can find any in Istanbul). Love to eat junk food and instantly regret it then eat some healthy food after and get some stomach cramps. Oh, I’m a proud Ducatista and Gemini.
Started my professional career by building commercial theme ads for Ekşi Sözlük in 2004, the very first theme I made was for the movie The Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Not so long after, I found myself at Euro RSCG 4D İstanbul (now Havas Worldwide İstanbul) in 2005. Until I took off to Televidyon.com project in 2007, I served to the brands like Sütaş, Volvo, Fox TV as a digital solution developer at Euro RSCG 4D.
What I find think “the best move done in the very wrong time” was the Televidyon.com (I found the name, YAAY!) which was simply an online video on demand television channel. The project was a big success and a failure at the same time. Until 2008, when I was hired by NTV as a tech and science editor, I served as a TV Host to Kafa Kafaya, Teknosohbet.TV and handcoder CSS/HTML/JS hero to Televidyon.com project.
At the time I was at NTV, I was responsible for Tech and Science section of ntvmsnbc.com and responsible to provide news for the broadcast schedule for NTV. Then came the job offer from McCann Erickson İstanbul. Between 2009 June to 2010 Apr. I was responsible as lead Front End Developer for various clients like Intel, Asus, Turkish Airlines, Best Buy and Samsung. Then came the job offer from Tribal Worldwide İstanbul.
It was April 2010 when I was hired by Tribal Worldwide İstanbul as an UX/UI developer to serve for Turk Telekom with a very talented team, we refurbished Turk Telekom’s digital broadcast platform Tivibu and a number of websites like TTNet.com.tr and so on. Then came the phone call from Red Bull Turkey in December 2010.
At Red Bull Turkey, I was responsible for planning and executing communication projects for (inter)national Red Bull related content in digital and interactive media platforms within Turkey, developing new communication channels, identifying and following up latest trends, seeking out new opportunities and aplly them to Red Bull’s general and digital communication strategy.
If you have read all the stuff above to this line, you may say that I didn’t have enough time to live my life. So, in April 2012, I chose to have a break from the corporate life. Focused on a bunch of start-ups and life. I am living a freelance life since then. You may find the details on my LinkedIn profile.
