I was born in Istanbul on 1960. I lived in Nisantasi until I was 19. My work life started with my first job in Libya. After 2 years in Libya, I worked for another two years in Iraq. I found a different Turkey when I came back. I met with computers in 1988. I've been working in Information Technology since 1990. I scoped and implemented various projects including factory automation, development of retail applications and websites for companies, organisations and artists. I migrated to Australia in 1994 with my family and been living in Melbourne since then. Photography, philosophy and ancient Anatolian history are my passions. I've been contributing to different publications with my articles. I'm a regular contributor to www.ayorum.com news and commentary website.
