After studying sociology at Koç University, I started to work in the media sector for a while. When I realized that office job between 09:00-18:00 wasn’t fitting me anymore, I became a freelance, travelling the world and writing travel articles.

 

In 2013, I published my first culture and travel magazine (match-up mag) in Istanbul. During the days of searching subjects for my magazine, I became more into human stories and the lives of people who once were strangers but then are becoming familiar faces of my travels. 

 

Since then, I’ve been writing human&culture based travel stories and taking photographs for travel publications, online publications and the monthly inflight magazine of Turkish Airlines.  

 

Available for projects // travel worldwide.
