I worked as a sound designer and music producer for the national culture TV channel TRT2 from 2018 to 2022. In addition to my work at TRT2, I have contributed to numerous award winning feature films and advertisement projects. Currently, I am a Sound Designer and Music Producer for the early learning platform Upily, continuing my journey in sound design and music production since 2012.

I work collaboratively with architects, structural engineers, mechanical engineers, musicians, and local authorities to discuss and agree on acoustic project objectives. My involvement spans various projects, including airport buildings, radio TV, music halls, residential developments, performing arts spaces, and offices.
