About me
I'm a creative technologist working with data and tech to design and build platforms and interfaces that solve data-centric business problems and create affective, critical, experiences from physical/digital artifacts. My area of expertise lies in data visualization, information design, and creative uses of data. This involves implementing data-rich UIs that condense and allow for exploration of multi-dimensional datasets. Sometimes it entails developing POCs using emerging technologies and advising on the creative possibilities of tech for communications work. Through this context, I work within multi-disciplinary teams in different stages of product development—from ideation and prototyping to production. Throughout my career, I’ve done service design for digital products, cleaned and crunched a lot of numbers, prototyped recommendation engines. I’ve also written a lot of code. All this for clients within variegated business verticals—Google, Siemens, McDonalds, Unilever, Nike, BCG, and Doğuş Group. My work has been awarded (D&AD, Eurobest, Campaign UK etc) and shortlisted (Cannes) for its creative applications of data and storytelling.
