Howdy! I’m
a visual and interaction designer from Mersin, Turkey
— currently moving pixels at YouTube in San Francisco, CA.

  My current design focus consists of interaction design, system design, and some visual design. I studied Graphic Design at MICA so my past work involves print collaterals, branding, typography, 3D, and motion design. Most recently, I’ve been reimagining the future of Live TV at YouTube TV — designing on web, mobile and TV.

  I love experimenting and learning professionally and in my personal life. In my free time, I like exploring the city with my dog charlie,
going to concerts or picnics with friends, picking up a new hobby like dj’ing, woodworking, rug making,
or relaxing in my room and staring at my plants.
