Est. 1989. Originally from Fethiye, Turkey. Won the Green Card Lottery in 2000, moved to NYC in 2011

I’m a sr. designer (currently at Squarespace), a writer (at times), a cyclist (I run a girls-only bike club called Handlebra), a sailor (in Jamaica bay in the summers), and a joy to be around. I studied traditional graphic design because of my love of basic decomposition of shapes and colors, and also because I was very good at drawing in kindergarten.

I'm a firm believer of common sense, user of public transportation, lover of old buildings. But beware! I have very strong feelings about cereal and automobiles, all of which are negative. I am, however, a big proponent of self-driving cars and I like milk, which, I know, is confusing.

At heart I am still that traditional graphic designer, always working to incorporate the best design and technology into my work. I work best when paired with an eclectic group of people who care a lot about the overall creative strategy.
