I was born and raised in the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. I come from a family of artists; both parents are architects and my father was an incredible designer. Design, the arts and business were always topics of conversation at the dinner table. I graduated Macalester College with a degree in Media and Cultural Studies, and with minors in Communications, and Spanish. Upon graduating I moved to New York City and started working in advertising as a producer. In my 10+ year career, I brought ideas to life collaborating with talented artists and told stories via motion.
I started photography with a desire to create original content on my own and have fallen in love with it deeply since. It has made it possible for me to illustrate the way I see the world and once again tell stories. I am currently expanding my portfolio in New York and as I travel the world.
