Born in Istanbul. After graduating from Lycee Francais Saint Benoit, I have studied graphic design at Bilkent University. For 10 years I worked as an art director in local and global advertising agencies such as Ajans Ultra, Yorum Publicis, Medina Turgul DDB, Rafineri, Leo Burnett and Ogilvy&Mather for brands like Boyner, Volkswagen, Akbank, Axess, Siemens, Cappy, Sprite, Fanta, Molfix, Molped, Mudo, Tekirdag Rakısı, Ulker, Hürriyet, Milka, etc. Right now I'm working for my own clients as a graphic designer, art director and illustrator. I'm one of the luckiest people who love their job. 

I also have a column called "Jazz and Cinema" in Jazz Dergisi ( and I'm frequently writing new album releases and making interviews with jazz musicians all around the world. I'm a dedicated ashtangi and a jazz guitar player.
