Bridging Software and Design

Studied computer science with a focus on human-computer interaction and architectural design at Stanford. Designed at Twitter, Periscope, and Autodesk, from ideation, UI/UX design, prototyping, and sometimes implementation. Leading design at Humble Dot, a tool fostering stronger and happier teams. 

Bridging the East and the West

Born and raised in Turkey, a large peninsula that bridges the continents of Europe and Asia. Moved to California to study at Stanford University, where the wind of freedom blows. Based in San Francisco, my second favorite city with seven hills after Istanbul. 

Bridging Technology and Mindfulness

200-hour certified yoga teacher. Teaching yoga and meditation to techies in offices and outdoors. Sharing mindfulness with makers of technology, with the goal to recognize the larger impact tech has on the human experience. 

Who are you?

If you ended up here, chances are you relate to me at some level. Don't be a stranger. Love to hear who you are, what inspires you or what keeps you up at night.
