I'm trilingual and passionate about games, history, space, and intercultural communication. Ten years ago, my passion for games began to transform into a professional career. This was triggered by my first game modding experience for Paradox games in 2012. Since then, I worked on several games like Hearts of Iron 3: Their Finest Hour, East vs West, Squad, Terminal Conflict, and acclaimed mods like Black ICE and Project Reality.

Aside from my game development career, I also managed an international NGO that focused on European Union research projects and hosted many entrepreneurship events like Creative Coffee Ankara or TEDxHacettepeUniversity. After 2017, my main focus shifted toward creating Suzerain and guiding it to a commercial release. Thanks to our talented and diligent team, we released our dream game that was critically acclaimed while also being a financial success. Torpor is now expanding the universe of Suzerain and developing a new game called The Conformist.

Currently, I am managing Torpor Games while also providing services in consulting and event speaking regarding the software industry with a focus on start-ups and games.
