Born in Istanbul, 1991; grew up in such a lovely family. I started reading and writing at a very early age and even in those times knew that I’m going to earn my life through writing. Graduated from Marmara University, Translation and Interpreting in English (BA) and Anatolian University, Media and Communication Studies (AA) in 2013. I also got Elocution and Voice-over Education from Başkent İletişim Bilimleri Akademisi (Başkent Communication Science Academy).

Right after the college, I translated three fantastic books from Julie Kagawa (Iron Daughter, Iron Queen, Iron Prince) for Pegasus Publishing. Meanwhile, I started working for Harvard Business Review Turkey as a reporter. I wrote business articles, interviewed CEOs and business people, translated precious articles of precious professors for the magazine and managed content on hbrturkiye.com. I edited numerous blog pieces to be published on the website. I also managed social media accounts of Harvard Business Review Turkey for a while.

Then I joined the team of Turkish Airlines’ inflight magazine group. Working as an editor, I wrote culture & art, sport, music, technology, travel pieces and made interviews with artists, musicians, designers, CEOs, entrepreneurs for Skylife, Skylife Business, and AnadoluJet magazines. I was also the responsible Content Editor of Skylife Business magazine, which required managing the content, translation and client process. Again was responsible for managing the social accounts of Skylife magazine for a while. I contributed to travel magazines such as Condé Nast Traveller and SunExpress Airlines inflight magazine SunTimes. After a while, I continued my path at The Oil & Gas Year (TOGY), which produces industry-defining books and maps on the world’s emerging and established oil and gas markets and provides business intelligence, strategic communication and networking to the global energy industry, as an Associate Editor for almost a year. Following TOGY, I went back to travel magazines for a while and became a part of Group Medya as the Editor of Pegasus Airlines‘ inflight magazine and then as the Managing Editor of Atlasglobal Airlines’ inflight magazine Glober.

Since February 2018, I have been working at Google as the Editor of ThinkwithGoogle.com.tr !

To sum up, I love writing, editing and travelling!
