I have studied computer programming since high school. During my high school years, I worked in local newspapers and magazines in Ayvalık, where I lived. Here I had the opportunity to interested in design and improve my design skills.
I continued my career as a designer in digital agencies and during this time I had the opportunity to work with different brands.
Later, I worked as a product designer for different product companies and also had the opportunity to manage small design teams.
I've had the chance to help companies validate, prototype, and design digital products that help improve how we live today. I took part in the entire design process, from the research process to the go-live.
I love ❤️ organizing events, bringing people together and allowing them to share their experiences.
I have organized or been a part of events since the first day of my career. I joined communities and I never hesitated to share what I know there.
Brewing coffee is my passion.
Brewing coffee is like a chemical experiment. It is possible to get a different flavor, different smell, different color in every brew, and this excites me.
v60 brewing and different v60 types (japanese) are my favourites. But a good espresso wouldn't be bad at all.
I do believe sharing & listening experience is valuable.
I improved myself a lot when I attend events, listen podcasts, read articles.
That's why I started hosting a podcast series called Talkcast.
It was all about the design process at the beginning but then involved to another part of the product development such as management, development and marketing.
