Whatabouts and whereabouts as of 2021: A non-managing partner and a director of board at an SME in the wastewater management sector; also occasionally undertaking work as a (service) design consultant and an editor in arts/media/communications. Interested practically in food systems- and water-related projects and conceptually in probes that involve non-human actors and ecological/relational thinking. Education at the intersection of media/communication tech, design, arts, and critical thinking--an alumni of Uskudar American Academy ('00), RIT ('05, BSc); NYU, Tisch/ITP (MPS, '09); and EGS (PhD Phil, '18). First part of quasi-nomadic adult life (2001-2018) spent in New York, Boulder, and Seattle, studying, and working mostly in media, finance, ed-tech, insurance, and health sectors. Arrived "home" in Istanbul in late '18. Personal time spent on journeying, mixed-media art, writing/thinking about borders and relatedness; and as a seawoman/skipper; a lover of a black cat named Yin, the outdoors, music, and the social; and a student of yoga and tai-chi.
