About Me

I’m a software engineer, a web enthusiast, a traveler, a serious foodie… and many other things. But if I had to pick one, I’d call myself a lifelong-learner. I’m a truly passionate person about learning new things. But whatever I try to do, I just try to have fun. I think that’s the only important thing.

I love startups. I worked at one for 3 years, had great friends there and a great experience. I also learned a lot, obviously. I joined Pisano not having any deep knowledge or experience in anything. I started working there knowing little about lots, then I left knowing lots about lots.

Then I interned at Google. Being a part of this software giant was a totally unique experience. I learned a lot about software-at-scale and more about making many engineers work together in perfect coordination. It was also a good experience for me to learn about how big companies keep their employees happy and help them achieve a good work-life balance.

Then I helped co-found Lisa, and left soon after seeing that it didn’t work out the way I wanted. It was a promising idea, but it didn’t progress well even though we worked really hard.

Now I build the new version of Infoset and freelance on the side for Dior, L’Oréal, EasyKnock, DoNotPay, and many other companies.

Enough work topics. Outside of work, I travel a lot.

I occasionally catch the aurora.

And enjoy the beautiful waters of Thailand.

But none is better than my home country, Turkey, if you’re a foodie just like me. (you’ve probably heard of salt bae)

That’s all about me. Hit me up if you’re anywhere near Istanbul and just want to have a coffee ☕️
