I was born in Turkey on 13th June 1984. I am based in London/United Kingdom where I finished my masters in Journalism International (Broadcast) at the University of Westminster.

I have bachelors degree in Sociology from the Ege University in Izmir (Turkey) and I have 5 years experience in the journalism field. First, I had worked for a news magazine, Izmir Life, as a correspondent from September 2003 to June 2005. Also I was involved in the process of publishing a weekly tabloid newspaper, Izmir'de 7 Gun.

In June 2005, I started to work for a national television network and Turkey’s first news channel, NTV, as a correspondent. I worked there as the only correspondent in the Izmir Office for 3 years. I was also responsible for the entire Aegean Region and travelled many other cities to report news.

I would like to continue my career in video production.

My native language is Turkish, apart from that I have an advance level of English and elementary level of French. My hobbies include being a professional scuba diver (CMAS) and a professional swimmer for the Ege University for 7 years.
