I am a writer/editor, and film programmer from Istanbul, Turkey and currently based in Chicago, IL. I like long sentences, but if you do not, “I like words, movies, and art.” is a perfect summary of my career, life, and desires.
Writing has always been a tool of expression for me; being first a creative way of socializing, then a blog that helped me change my career path and finally a profession. I write about movies, culture, and arts for various publications and online platforms.
Movies are vital for me. I write about movies and curate film programs, join film festival teams and/or follow film festivals as press, but I also love making film lists, tweeting about films and award season, watching films every day/everywhere and being a passionate film festival audience – just for my own fun.
My career objective is working in the creative industry using writing skills, applications of social and digital media and knowledge in film.
