About me

I was born in Chicago but my parents are from Turkey and I am 100% Turkish who is also an American citizen. I am a diplomat's daughter, who has lived in many cities all her life such as; Tahran, Virginia, Beijing, Istanbul, Doha, Dubai and now Madrid. I majored in graphic design at a fine arts faculty at Istanbul. My advertising and design career started off when I interned at McCann Erickson Istanbul and DDB & Co. Which later on that year I landed a job as Jr. Art Director at TBWA\Istanbul. As I grew my experience in advertising I noticed that I didn't only want to be a designer but to also to put my thinking cap on and come up with ideas as well. After 2 years in TBWA\Istanbul I got a new opportunity to experience a completely different region where I worked as a creative for 3 years at Memac Ogilvy & Mather Dubai. Currently I moved to the heart of creativity in Europe; Spain. Besides getting fat on amazing Spanish tapas and wine with my partner we're also working on freelance projects along side our personal projects. Finally I would like to mention I am a huge cheese fan. When I am not sitting around eating cheese, I love to sketch very random thoughts that go on in my mind and write my book, which hopefully I will finish before I die. Besides that I love to snowboard, sail, longboard and always find time for great food, drinks, music and dancing!
