Aside from my passion in software development, one of my biggest hobbies is music. I play the guitar, bass and drums. I have played in various bands, orchestras, and ensemles in both Turkey and United States.

I also have a huge passion for backpacking and traveling. I love exploring the world with only my backpack, meeting new people, seeing new places and increasing my vision about this earth. This provides me with a diverse point of view that embraces the differences and grows me in a way I could never imagine. It also shows me the opportunities nobody else is aware of.
