I am a software engineer based in Istanbul, Turkey. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Sabanci University and a Master's in Software Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University.

I started my career as a prototyping engineer working on various cool gadgets: car consoles, video game controllers, hand-tracking systems, geospatial databases, and even intelligent fabrics. Then, I switched to mobile development and worked for a cool startup called Fleksy in San Francisco. During my tenure as an Android engineer, I realized that AWS makes things much more enjoyable for everyone in the company and decided to focus on it. Since then, I have spent most of my hours on AWS services, Terraform and GitHub.

After moving back to Istanbul in 2016, I experienced being a freelancer for about a year and joined another cool startup, Lifemote Networks, in 2017. In the last couple of years, I found the opportunity to build multiple distributed systems that scale to millions of requests per minute, design and implement multi-account AWS organizations, and define CI/CD pipelines for a team of 20 engineers from scratch.

Since 2022, I have been learning more about security, including vulnerability management, zero-trust architectures, least-privileged access best practices, and intelligent threat detection services. I look forward to sharing things I learn with blog posts and presentations.

I like sunny days, elegant designs, and comic books.
