About 

Born May 1979 in Istanbul Turkey. Graduated from Eastern Mediterranean University, Faculty of Architecture in 2002. Afterwards, while working finished the MBA program from Yeditepe University in 2008.

Returned to education in 2010 attending to "UCLA Extension - Advance Standing Program in Interior Design". Joined the collabrative program between Cal Poly Pomona and U.C.L.A. Extensionin 2011. Finished the collabrative program earning the degree "Masters in Interior Architecture" in 2012.

Being the only son of a perfectionist Electrical engineer I was raised to think logical and functionally. I believe this upbringing allows me to be a better and more functional designer, also my interest in technology and electronics had allowed me to easily grasp and learn different computer software’s and keep up.

Although I have a bachelor’s degree in architecture (Not Licensed in the U.S.), due to the intertwined nature of the design and construction process, I had the chance to work in projects where I assisted in designing, planning and managing the project and overseeing of the construction process. I have managed construction crews of 16 to 20 people at times where I was both the project coordinator and the construction manager, on site. I also had the chance to be a part of and in times, managed, design teams that included CAD drafters, 3D renderers and consultants. In our profession the theoretical and practical knowledge are two totally different concepts, and being an inquisitive person who doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty has been a benefit which I can bring to your company. Knowledge of this reality and being able to apply it to my relations with people, whom I managed, created a working environment with very good and strong
