About

Who I am

I was born in 1980 in Ankara, Turkey. I was introduced to traditional drawing through comics and BASIC programming through Commodore64 at an early age and developed a passion for both fields. I began my university education at Hacettepe University's Department of Economics in 1999. While studying at the university, I did both personal and commercial studies in web programming, 3D animation, and modeling.

In 2004, I pursued my interest in art and left the Department of Economics to study sculpture at Hacettepe University's Faculty of Fine Arts. In 2008, I graduated with the highest degree and worked as a Research Assistant in the same department. My master's thesis was on the applications of human-machine interaction, algorithms, and image-processing technologies in performance arts. I participated in numerous national and international symposia, workshops, and art festivals as an instructor.

My individual and academic works were displayed in numerous personal and group exhibitions. Since 2010, I continue my career as a software architect in start-ups in Turkey and abroad. My current interests include game development, open-source technologies, creative coding, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and augmented reality.
