Industrial designer turned Interaction designer. Currently making products at Microsoft & living in Berlin. Previously at Foursquare. Proud Parsons alumni. Ex-Brooklyner. Mentor for several startups across the globe. Heart somewhere between New York, Istanbul, and Berlin.

I am passionately curious (like Einstein puts it) and love to experiment and make things, let's say, a little different. I strive to explore the relationship between media, space, technology, and human. I am a huge believer in design, code, and critical thinking; and how they transform into fascinating mediums of meaning and experience.

I obsess over design thinking, creative process, and the power of design as social change. On the side, I spend my time working on community-based products, tools, and services that awake social consciousness. I help nonprofits, social good organizations, and communities craft their narrative and provide creative strategy.

I also deeply care about diversity in tech and I organize events as a part of XX+UX - a community for women in user experience design. I am always up for a chat if you share the same passion and want to host an event.

When I am not working, I travel/take photos/paint/experiment with creative writing.
