Hi, I'm Emre!

I am an Extended Reality Developer / Designer with a versatile 10+ years of architectural design background. 

Experimenting, designing, and creating across digital realities with various mediums are some of my superpowers.

I play with reality to create strategies for the immersive media landscape of today and the near future. I synthesize my spatial design artistry with a user-based XR craft to conquer new frontiers of unique realities and create captivating and meaningful experiences for people.

I thrive in fast-paced creative environments with epic teamwork. My strength lies in my flexibility to collaborate and my adaptability to challenging situations.

I love participating in design competitions in creative fields and exploring unique ideas and places in my free time.

I enjoy playing video games, indoor bouldering and listening neo-psychedelic music.

Always open to exploring new opportunities to create, invent and explore.
