About Me


explore the limits of my body for mental and physical wellness.


i better work on an official biography..

i'm in love with sea, beach, sun, summer as i spent all my youth on the beautiful beaches of antalya, south coast of turkey where my parents still reside.

i have been physically active since i know myself, thus i care a lot about body awareness. important to be noted: not only caring but also practicing, a detail ;)

i survived a heavy-competitive educational system, and ended up not only studying but also functioning as an electronics engineer. though, i still remember the days i was crying to become, first, a volleyball player, second, a dancer..

my current way of expressing a certain part of my feelings is through argentine tango. i happen to dance here and there, traveling to meet dancers from the world, it can be anywhere! very likely to be my major reason to visit your city..

i might occasionally get confused about following either my logic or my intuition. both of them show up quite strongly and are proven to work for good..

i'm in the gang of distant-friendships -most of my best&good friends are located all over the world, we just all happen to travel often.

and finally, our forefathers are well known to be very hospital, apparently i'm a follower. i love cooking for people and introducing the delicious turkish cuisine, if you ever be my guest then you will get the chance to taste some!


life must be in the state of continuous change...
