This is my story...

I design software



Web & mobile apps

Started a YC company



Been working at startups since 2007

I love visual design



It pays to sweat the details

Craft my own HTML/CSS



Started as a frontend developer

I use a lot of paper



Nothing's faster or more creative

I run usability tests



It's my favorite UX tool

I'm a night owl



insomnia = productivity

Born in Istanbul



Not Constantinople

Grew up in California



Skate, surf & BMX

I studied biology



Did neuroscience research for 3 years

I have a lovely wife



She's the nicest person I know

We have two tiny dogs



They're our furbabies

I love science



It's like an infinite puzzle

Played soccer my whole life



Blew out my knee trying to go pro



I love to travel

And explore the planet



I love San Francisco



California casual in a dense metro
