Hi! I’m an architect based in Barcelona, specialized in schematic design and 3D modeling. 

Originally from Istanbul, I have been living and working abroad for the past 10 years pursuing new opportunities.

I have a proactive mindset and a versatile set of skills that include creating complex and clean 3D models, making visually appealing and clear graphics, and working fast within tight schedules.

Professionally, I have worked on projects ranging in scale from urban design to small refurbishments. Having lived in different places and collaborated with people from various countries, I am very comfortable working with international teams.

Currently I am looking for project-based collaborations.
