What is a typical day like?
I try not to wake up not so late in the morning, have a coffee with some cereal and check the news. I like to divide my day into hours so that I can take some time for myself and put a tick next to my daily responsibilities for work or people around me throughout the day. I go out for some time to find peace in nature. I like to spend my time at night. I read a lot and write more than that.
My favorite memory is when I first visited Thailand and had a monkey steal my wallet while giving me a banana.
What do you like most about your job?
I like that it is an international business that allows me to connect with people. I love the English language and my job gives me the opportunity to speak it.
Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Ankara, Turkey.
What do you like to do when you aren’t working?
I read and write every day. I spend most of my time either listening to or making some music. I play violin, piano and love to be around DJs.
Who are your favorite sports teams?
I am not into sports that much but if I have to name some, they would be Galatasaray and LA Lakers.
What’s a fun fact about you many people may not know?
When I was 4-5 years old, I wanted to be a garbage man because they were out constantly.
