I am an architect with 10 years of experience who has been involved with various facets of the design process. Throughout my career, I’ve held a variety of positions, ranging from junior design architect, project architect and project coordinator. Before starting to work in office environments, I’ve worked as a freelance CG artist/designer. I’m well versed in several different software suites and open to adapting to different positions and roles in the profession.
I graduated from Kadıköy Anadolu High School in 2001, and started my studies in architecture in Yıldız Technical University the same year. During my studies, I did internships at Nevzat Sayın and Han Tümertekin. I also did an extended internship at Arkitera, working on the Arkiv project in 2004. I earned my bachelors degree and have been a member of the Chamber of Architects of Turkey since 2006.
I continued my studies in the masters program "Architectural Design Computing" of Istanbul Technical University. I was chosen as one of the exchange students to attend TU Delft in 2007-2008 academic year. My graduate studies ended in 2009, but I've completed my thesis work later, in 2019 and earned my master's degree.
I've worked as a freelance architect and CG artist during my time as a masters student from 2006 to 2008. In June 2008, I joined TMO Architecture as a concept designer and worked on several shopping mall projects. In June 2010, I joined Tabanlioglu Architects as a junior architect where I worked on projects like Astana Media Center, Sipopo Congress Center and Ziraat Bank Levent Offices. I continued my professional journey with MuuM Architects from June 2012, where I held a myriad of different positions, which include 3d concept designer, project architect, senior architect, project coordinator and CAD administrator.
Throughout my tenure in MuuM Architects, I worked on more than a dozen competition projects that were awarded various prizes as well as the proposal for Erciyes Congress Center (of which I was the lead architect) which was shortlisted for the WAF Awards 2015. During my five and a half years in MuuM, I've also worked with BIM software, took part in early BIM developments of several projects and done sustainability studies in Revit.
I've been working as a freelance/contract architect since 2018.
