Country of Origin


Country of Residence


Where are you from?

Istanbul, Turkey.

What would you like to tell about yourself?

I do not like to miss opportunities and I like exploring new experiences. Actually it is the brief explanation of how I met Tampere.

Erasmus is a great experience for a student aged 20. I did not want to miss the chance and then I found myself in beautiful and snowy Tampere.

What makes Tampere special for you?

Tampere is the combination of nature, peace, technology and education. I love Istanbul but Istanbul is the city of chaos with over 15 million people. What I miss in Tampere is being in nature but also being in the heart of technology at the same time.

Tell about your professional activities?

I am a Co-Founder of a mobile game company called Hammurabi Games which based in Turkey. I know of the biggest mobile games companies are based in Finland and I am curious about what would Finland and Tampere offer me in that matter.

What is your involvement in international activities?

We have mobile game players all around the world which causes us to work with several business partners around the world.

What is your mission as a Tampere Ambassador?

My mission as a Tampere Ambassador is to connect people from Tampere and Istanbul & Turkey to generate new business opportunities.

What potential do you see for Tampere in the future?

I believe Tampere has a lot to offer. For me the technology might show great rise in the near future.
