Co-Founder / COO, Kök Projekt
I have a diverse background. My professional journey started when I received my degree in Economics. I was pretty good with numbers and had an eye for detail. Auditing was my thing. But I was born into an age that technology was the key, so I felt the urge dig deeper. I had to learn and become proficient in that field. That unsatisfied eagerness to learn followed by my Masters Degree in Information Systems. But all these educational efforts had to be financed. This is where my career in airline security came in. I was in my mid twenties and sleepless nights at the airport didn’t seem so bad to support my education and pay the bills. After three long years, I ran out of gas. My energy levels started to decline. But why? Was it malnutrition? What should I eat? How should I eat? Where were these things coming from anyway? As soon as these questions popped up in my head, guess what happened? I was at Culinary Arts Academy of Istanbul for my culinary training in 2012. All along the way I knew and dreamed that all these would come together for me to shape my future and hopefully the whole humankind.
