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 am living in Madrid, Spain to be closer to the opportunities in Europe. 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!
