UX Design Manager

I’m a UX design manager and an entrepreneur. I’m passionate about creating experiences and building sustainable startups. I have worked with incredibly talented people across different companies.

About me

I am working on User Experience Design and Entrepreneurship. Therefore, I founded 2 Startups and 2 NGOs, in addition to working as the President of Izmir Branch of Industrial Designers Society of Turkey. 

My key skills are:

  • UX Research

  • User Experience Design

  • Managing High Budget Projects

  • Managing Interdisciplinary Teams

  • Building Communities

  • Building and Coaching Startups

  • Creating and Conducting Training Programs

Qualitative Research

I started my career as a sociologist, which allowed me to gain a great deal of experience conducting in-depth interviews and qualitative research methods.


In my first UX designer job, I had the opportunity to perfect my prototyping skills. My favorite tools are Axure and Figma.

UI Design & Branding

In 2019, I took an in-depth UI course to improve my UI design and graphic design skills. Since then I've been involved in UI design and branding projects as well.

What I do when I'm not working

If you can't find me at my computer, I'm either playing my ukulele, painting watercolors or improving my salsa moves.
